Abstract

"The one-arm soldier," broadside poem, appears, with minor changes, in a number of different broadsides from the period, and is associated, variously, with John Williams, who was wounded at Winchester, George M. Reed, wounded at Shiloh, Henry H. Meacham, and Harry Gilmore, a "one-armed boy", wounded at Petersburg—all may have used and sold a common poem, rather than writing it.
