EPITAPH ON A YANKEE. – Speaking of graves and buried Yankees, brings to mind an epitaph found chalked upon a shingle, which was stuck up at the head of a Yankee buried in a ditch on the battle field:
“The Yankee host with blood-stained hands,
Came Southward to divide our lands,
This narrow and contracted spot
Is all that this poor Yankee got.”
— From the Richmond Enquirer, Tuesday, 8 July 1862.
