  • Histories
    Veterans: Confederate
    Veterans: Confederate
    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!
