Col. Buttz: Oh, don't make me laugh. We've only got 19,000! Ha ha ha, oh yeah! Ha ha ha ha!
[Operator 14 writes on a piece of paper: "19,000 men."]
Operator 12: But I reckon we ought to have about 350 heavy pieces of artillery, don't you think?
Col. Buttz: Ah, that's where we've fooled 'em! We've only got 18 pieces!
[Operator 14 writes on a piece of paper: "18 big guns."]
Operator 12: Operator 12: 18 pieces? A mere handful!
Operator 15: All Union soldiers are now wearing Union underwear! Think of it!

Union spies: And here's to the success of OUR cause!
Operator 14: I baked a cake once, but it fell and killed the cat.
