THE DYING SOLDIER
(Affectionately Inscribed to Lizzie A. Christie.)
Col. Christie, of ^sorth Carolina, fell mortally wounded
at the battle of Gettysburg, while gallantly leading his
men against the enemy’s breastworks. He was taken to
Winchester, where he was nursed tenderly until his death.
He longed to see his young wife—his darling Lizzie—but
when she reached Winchester, he was dead. His last
words were. “Kiss me for Lizzie.”—Extract from a Letter.

The loving are the daring.”
