Secesh Poetry

These lines  come from the Covington Journal of July 4, 1862, providing another little bit of humor.

Secesh Poetry
A secesh girl writes to her cousin, who is a prisoner at Camp Morton, Indianapolis:
"I will bee for Jeffdavis till the tenisee river freezes over, and then be for him and scratch on the ice:"

'Jeffdavis rides a white horse,
and Lincoln rides a mule,

Jeffdavis is a gentleman,
and Lincoln is a fool.'
