    Now Captain, I am truly thankful that we did happen upon this lodge that is filled with such fine gentlemen. Judging by your accent you must be from Louisiana! How about for this moment in time we, forget about this war and enjoy the evening together as gentlemen! Their can be no harm in it can there?
    Well, you see major, I am actually, from Spain, but yes, I have been living for quite some time on Louisiana, so that might be why.

    *Whispers* I do not mind having gentlemen that have pledged themselves to other ``Powers´´but you must do some things before going into the room itself. You need to leave your weapons here. And your hats. And your frock coats... For obvious reasons.
    Now, I would give you a jacket, but if you were to be caught while wearing it, well, you would be called a spy and hanged.
    Of course, as men of honor you two gents are, I must have your word that you won´t try anything while in here. Im sure you understand.

    So, what do you two gentlemen say?

    I don't know if I'm an officer or not. Should pull up a seat or serve the dranks?

    And while you're at it, my boots and spurs could stand a polishing.

    I'm sorry Captain but as a man of honour you understand fully that asking us to relieve ourselves of our personal side arms and worst of all out swords is out of the question. I am a touch offended that you thought it would be a good idea. As a southern officer you know that an officer must never hand over his sword unless surrendering.

    Tis a pity that the evening must end like this but I believe the Captain and myself will show ourselves to the door and risk trying to get back through your alarming poor pickets. Good evening Captain; I hope not to have to face you in the field as it would be a dreadful shame.

    *To Mr. McGee* Come along now Captain! Let us away before anyone else shows up and we end up prisoners!

    Goodnight sir! It would really be shame to see each other in the battlefield, I wouldn´t want to take your sword when you surrender!

    *To myself* Well, it seems that the strategy has worked. They are leaving, this meaning I don´t have to deal with charges of fraternizing with the enemy...

    I Do believe he is from a New York regiment though
    "If we were wrong in our contest, then the Declaration of Independence of 1776 was a grave mistake and the revolution to which it led was a crime. If Washington was a patriot; Lee cannot have been a rebel."
