This poem was taken from Southern Poems of the War, compiled by Virginian Emily Mason in 1868. The dedication of the volume read: "These poems, the offspring of Southern hearts, sung by Southern firesides and Southern campfires, are affectionately inscribed to the Southern soldiers, by one who admired their heroism, sympathized with their successes, mourned their sufferings, and shared their privations."

"Victories of the Heart"
