|Death: ||Sep. 2, 1864|
I Die for My Country
In New Orleans, Sept. 2, 1864 of typhoid fever at Barracks General Mass. Hospital.
26 Mass Reg
son of Amos and Mary Eldridge
age 20 years
Far away from his home where his loved ones dwell
The Soldier sank to ...
Where no mother's tears o'er his pillow fell
No kiss on his brow was pressed
No brother was near to clasp his hand
Nor sister his eyes to close
But far far away in a strange land
He sank to his last repose.
