Poetry written by a woman in Rochester, much of it with a Civil War theme. Among these is a poem entitled "The Volunteer," with lines which describes a fallen son being returned to his mother, her lament reading: "The North, the South, to me, / All places are the same! / My mother-tears have quench'd / The patriotic flame." Other pieces include "The Midnight Dirge" and "The Slave Girl." Relatively uncommon.
