Civil War: Private Dalzell Autograph Manuscript Signed

This lot has closed

Estimate: $100+


Autograph manuscript signed "James M. Dalzell, 'Private Dalzell,'" two pages, 7.75 x 12.5, headed: "The Blue and the Gray." Dalzell pens his five-stanza revision of Francis Miles Finch’s famous 1867 poem, beginning: "You may sing of the Blue and the Gray / And mingle their Lines in your rhyme, / But the Blue that we wore in the fray / Is covered with glory sublime: / So no more let us hear of the Gray, / The symbol of Treason and Shame— / We pierced it with bullets, away!" In fine condition, with minor loss to the upper right corner.
