A Curious Epitaph

From the Confederate Scrap Book, by Lizzy Cary Daniel, published 1893. I know nothing more.

A Curious Epitaph

I send you a copy of an epitaph written on a rude piece of board which I have in my possession. Mr. Winston brought it in from the body of a Southern soldier just killed on one of our fields:

Here lies a spotted Rebel bold,
Whose sum of years I canít unfold.
He died a traitor on this spot,
By a noble freemanís bullet shot;
A ghastly corpse, both stiff and stark
Buried by the Tenth New York.

A letter was found on the body of this soldier directed to J. H. Key, Wilmington, N.C.
