Fine content manuscript (unsigned) in black ink 1p. 4to., [n.p., n.d.], a poem or song drafted by a Union soldier, undoubtedly while in captivity as a prisoner of war, in part: "...In the prison sell I sit - thinking mother dear of you/And our bright and happy home so far away/And the tears they fill my eyes spite of all that I can do/Though I try to cheer my comrades and be gay... In the battlefront - we stood when the fiercest charge they made/And they swept us of a hundred men or more/But before they reached the lines they were driven back dismayed/And we heard the cry of victory 'ore and 'ore/There within the prison sell we are waiting for the day/That shall come to open wide our iron door/And our hollow eyes grin bright and our poor heart almost gay/ As we think of seeing home and friend once more. [all sic]" Shows a few small tears to the edges, show toning and a few ink spots, else very good.
