Richmond Newspaper Reprinted Poem from Georgia Girl
The Richmond Times Dispatch reprinted a romantic poem a north Georgia girl had penned to some of her admirers in the army there.
Tis hard for youens to sleep in camp, ‘Tis hard for youens to fight; ‘Tis hard for youens thro’ snow to tramp, In snow to sleep at night; But harder for weans from youens to part, Since youens have stolen weans hart.
