    Excerpt from An Account of the Great Explosion of the United States Ordnance Stores: Which Occured in Mobile, on the 25th Day of May, 1865

    From time to time, under the dispensations of mysterious Providence, individuals and nations are visited with some great calamity, terrible in its private agony, tragic and awful in its public woe. The veil of peace had scarcely been drawn over the horrors of the late war, by the national supremacy, when Mobile reposing in trustful security under the promised protection of the United States, was rocked to its centre, by a sudden and terrible explosion, unparalleled in its destruction of life and property. Pestilence, Flood and Fire, had in turn chastened her people, but all the combined trials and losses of the past, were but drops in the sea of trouble, occurring in the halcyon days of a nation's peace, the heart of the country would have wept, as it dwelt upon the particulars and details of such a disaster, and relief would have followed sympathy, as the tears follow each other. But the destruction and death seemed so much like an echo of the recent war, that the wearied people sickened with so much blood, and so much sorrow, looked upon it as an appendix to that sad history of war to which they had become inured.

    Your memorialists, sufferers by this great explosion, now that the past belongs to history, the impartial and unprejudiced judge, would respectfully, as citizens of the United States, beg to tax your time and attention with a brief account of this crash of matter and wreck of life.
