Subject: RE: Review: Unique Civil War Biography
The preface to the book included a poem. I assumed at the time that it probably was a song sung in the prison, or more likely sung after the war was over. Not knowing the melody, I sang it to the melody of "Lilly of the West." I've enjoyed that song for years.
Would you care to share it with us, Deckman?
