Each poem expresses the Southern sentiment in wonderful, poetic fashion. All the glory, heroism, fear, success, failure, concern, privation, sacrifice, sympathy, suffering, valor, courage and love of country are well reflected within the poems on these pages. Besides being a Memorial book, the author also intended to preserve these songs expressive of the hopes and triumphs and sorrows of a lost cause, I also had another design to aid by its sale the Education of the Daughters of our desolate land; to fit a certain number for Teachers, that they may take to their homes and spread amongst the different Southern States the knowledge of those accomplishments which else may be denied them.I appeal to all good people to aid me in this effort to provide for the women of the South (the future mothers of the country) timely boon of education. Many of these children are the orphans of soldiers, from whom they have inherited nothing but an honorable name, and the last hours of more than one of whom I was enabled to soothe by the promise that I would do something for the little ones they left behind them. That promise, I trust, this humble effort may enable me to part to redeem. The Author There are well over a hundred poems in this book.
