TENNESSEE CONFEDERATE SOLDIER POEM

$65.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1054-2245

Handwritten poem, apparently written in captivity by a Confederate soldier. One page lined paper, 8” x 7”, no place or date noted. Entitled, “My Home in Tennessee”.

The first stanza reads,

“I.

My home was once a happy place,

But now the Invaders fool is there;

They have trampled on the Soil I loved,

And left it, desolate, and bare!”

Signed at the bottom in red ink, “Edward U Gerding”. Reverse reads “Composed and written by E U Gerding”. Some age toning of paper; handwriting slightly faint; fold lines present. Overall condition very good.

A brief amount of internet research did not confirm the soldier’s identity; further research certainly a possibility.  [ld]
