39. true-hearted, brave, and Patriotic Girls of the Monumental City. Written by A Confederate Prisoner Whilst in Baltimore. Daughters of the sunny South, Where freedom loves to dwell, How rare your charms, how sweet your smiles, No mortal lips can tell; Your native hills, the rippling rills, The echo wild and free, Declare you born to hate and scorn All Northern tyranny. Girls whose smiles are all reserved, The Southern youth to bless; Whose hearts are kept for those who fight For freedom
ely composed) is a verbatim copy of a poem written by one of the Confederate prisoners captured at Winchester — and who was imprisoned in the Baltimore City Jail — while on their way North.
Our secesh ladies thronged the jail-yard for the entire two days of their stay, and while there, the above was thrown to them, with a note.
What the note contained I am not able to say, but can assure you as to the origination of the above.
Yours, with respect, Henry J. Howard. Baltimore, March, 18
