Patterned after Shakespeare's famous soliloquy from Hamlet, this parody appeared in the periodical The Confederate Union during the War. It was found in a very old book of verse published by Confederate veteran Charles Hubner of Atlanta after the War "especially...for the hearts and homes of old Confederate veterans, in whose breasts its contents will revive tender memories of camp and field; of the bivouac and the march; of the gloom and glory of battle."
