Decoration Ode.
1 Decoration Ode.
[Cherry Valley, NY] 1870 Very good 
Broadside containing 8 stanzas of poetry honoring soldiers killed in battle. Approximately 5 !/2" x 8 1/4" with a decorated black border. Dated May 30, 1870. Slightly soiled with a few cease marks but otherwise fully intact. This appears to be a Memorial Day poem from Cherry Valley, NY, honoring Union soldiers who died in the Civil war. "No angel of Death o'er the battle-field bending / With skeleton finger is pointing his prey; / Our god heard the prayers of a nation ascending, / And turned our dark midnight of horror to day." An interesting example of how Northern sacrifices were remembered in the aftermath of the Civil War. Worldcat locates just one copy in U.S. libraries.
