[written for the Dispatch.]
"Brigadier Ned."
respectfully dedicated to Brig. G. E. Johnson.
by Corporal T.

Here h to our Bgar where he may go,


‘ Who at Camp Alleghany encountered the foe,
Who in pride of life members,
On our small force
But was driven back
By Brigs for Ned.

No fear knoweth when in the red
Of war's dreadful , a shield
From the missions of death
And danger so dread;
For a very brave heart
Has Brigadier Ned

When the foe was advancing, he him a gun,
And worked with glly, and d was
He was mark the foremost,
And head
To was righteous,
Said Brigadier Ned.

For the hail storm of land ceased to wall in the air.
And its hordes driven back to their fastness and lair,
Never weary grew he
But fought gathered,
And demned them genteelly,
Did Brigadier Ned.

Then again to our Brigadier, "long may he brave."
When each man that him has found him a grave.
Though his frwn may be black,
And he's tough
Yet a very warm heart
Has Brigadier Ned.
Camp Alleghany , 1862.
