The New York Fire Zouaves were a famed regiment form by Elmer Ellsworth from New York City volunteer fire companies. Ellsworth was the first Union officer killed in the Civil War, bringing down the rebel flag flying over the Marshall House, as his regiment was occupying Alexandria, VA., April 24, 1861. The fact that his killing is not mentioned in the song lyrics indicates that this song-ballad sheet was published days earlier.
