    Had the South in her border
    A hero to spare,
    Or a heart at her altar,
    Lo! its life's blood was there!
    And the black battle-grime
    Might never disguise
    The smile of the South
    On the lips and the eyes
    Of her barefooted boys!

      "The 15th Confederate Cavalry was organized in early 1864 at Mobile, and it was composed of Alabama and Florida companies. In April 1865, it was sent to establish a courier line to Demopolis, but before this was done, the regiment took part in a disastrous fight at Claiborne. The greater part of the regiment disbanded, and the few who remained were paroled at Demopolis."
