Specially memorable are Lucy Larcom's Waiting for news, Kate Putnam Osgood's extraordinarily pathetic Driving home the Cows, C. D. Shanly's The Brier Wood Pipe, Augusta Cooper Bristol's Term of service ended, Read's The brave at home, The Drummer boy's burial (anonymous), and William Winter's After all.

Not only was Browne's idea happy and well executed; his introduction and notes are invaluable. He established the fact that the author of Stonewall Jackson's way was Dr. J. W. Palmer.
