Obituary

In Seneca Locks, Md., Nov. 5, Alonzo P. Carr, aged 18, son of B.P. Carr, of Concord, and member of Co. A, 10th Vt. Vols.

He now is gone, O, yes he's gone,
His voice is Still in death.
Our father saw the weary soul,
And called it home to rest.

Yet not alone in Southern clime,
He laid him down to sleep,
His earthly father bended o'er
His last request to keep.

In anguish deep he smoothed his couch,
He bathed his fevered brow.
And watched his fatherly ebbing breath,
Yielding to death its vow.

And now he sleeps, he calmly sleeps,
His country's call no more
Shall bid him there in duty stand,
On wade the field is gone.

While thus in anguish deep and wild,
Our rebel hearts are won,
And we in humble pity cry,
O' God thy will be done.
