Shiloh

Shiloh

It was a battle
In the civil war.
For our family,
A loss,
A scar on the family tree.

How did he die?
Our great great grandfather,
Bohemian immigrant,
Sent to battle by the Illinois regiment.
Leaving a wife and 4 hungry children.

They fought for the 5 dollar pension,
After he died.
I imagined one scenario.
I pray he didn't suffer,
While knowing he must have.
