The Spoils


Fredericksburg Battlefield

American Civil War May 3, 1863, Fredericksburg, Virginia, Second Battle of Fredericksburg – Confederate Dead Lining the Stone Wall at Marye’s Heights.

When the last stone has been cast,

The last shadow has past,

Brother will kill brother,

Man will kill man,

Ares’ laughter rolls like thunder,

As red coats the land,

To the victor goes the spoils,

As the fighting is done,

But who will be left to collect,

None to speak of.
