Unknown Union Soldier;
Buried Adamson Cemetery, Glenn,Heard Co.,Georgia On the Escape Route From The Battle Of Brown's Mill This soldier actually died at a farmer's well, about a half mile across the Alabama line. The farmer, who owned the property where the soldier died, built a casket from wood off his barn and buried him in the local cemetery at Glenn. You will notice that the grave has 2 slabs over it, as the poem below required that much space.
This dying man his friends had fled left to his foes not a word he said
Away from home away from friends and all that heart holds dear a federal soldier buried here no earthly friends was near
His lips were closed his body frail his dying groans and face was pale
Away from home away from friends and all that heart holds dear a federal soldier buried here no earthly friends was near
The clothes he wore blue uniform his body showed not a mark of harm
Away from home away from friends and all that heart holds dear a federal soldier buried here no earthly friends was near
His death occurred from unknown cause had a deathly stroke and fell from a horse
Away from home away from friends and all that heart holds dear a federal soldier buried here no earthly friends was near
His coffin rough and loosly laid of scraps of plank and they had
no nails
Away from home away from friends and all that heart holds dear a
federal soldier buried here no earthly frineds was near
The plank was off a nearby barn where federals robbed of its wheat and corn".

Thank you, Mr. farmer, for having compassion and Christian love to bury this fallen Union soldier so far away from home. May you and he rest in Peace in Heaven. See you both there.
