    fifty cents a day

    I am an humble Soldier
    far from my friends and home,
    mid scenes of war and hardships
    I constantly must roam,
    with many officers over me,
    and them I must obey,
    and do just what they tell me,
    for fifty cents a day.

    I enlisted in the army
    to help my country's cause,
    because I loved it dearly,
    and would sustain its laws,
    I felt a free man's duty,
    his country to obey,
    I came not as a hireling,
    for fifty cents a day

    I enlisted as a soldier.
    a free man and a man
    To do a soldiers duty,
    as best a soldier can.
    hope to fight the rebels,
    and hate this long delay.
    I came to help my country,
    for fifty cents a day.

    I now must yield to hardships
    in cold in storm and rain
    perchance with scanty rations
    not even then complain
    the right of seeking comfort
    long since I signed away
    my life I am slowly losing
    for fifty cents a day.

    who send the soldiers to the field
    to buy his willing hand,
    with promises so plentiful,
    of treatment like a man?
    twas those who, in two days,
    received a larger pay
    than does the soldiers in a month
    at fifty cents a day

    who promised to the soldier,
    his wrongs should be redressed
    if tyanny or officers
    should his right oppress?
    alas! the sword may smight him,
    or kicked around he may be,
    he finds his only redress,
    is fifty cents a day

    who promised to the soldiers,
    if sickness should appear,
    good doctors and kind nurses
    was ready and was near,
    to aid him in his feebleness
    as quick as though his pay
    was ten times as much
    as fifty cents a day.

    twas those who wear the shoulder straps
    with haughty air of grace,
    who look upon the soldier
    below the negro race,
    who thinks a soldier's duty
    is only to obey
    his lordship, and be content
    with fifty cents a day.

    how oft I've seen the soldier,
    near tottering to the ground,
    seek vainly for some friendly aid,
    when it could ne'er be found,
    when told he was not ailing,
    to go and take his way,
    one week would end his suffering
    and fifty cents a day.

    now, how many of these officers
    would be here where they are,
    if forced to live like soldiers,
    and take a soldier's fare?
    how few would take the treatment
    even with their liberal pay,
    let alone the poor pittance
    of fifty cents a day

    cheer up my gallant soldiers,
    be cheerful, gay, and smile,
    we'll do the fighting now,
    and the voting after awhile,
    and then we'll show oppressors
    that they may fell dismay,
    who treated us as serviles,
    at fifty cents a day.


    This poem was written by my great, great, great, grandfather when he was a POW in the civil war. He wrote this during the month of December 1863. I wanted to share this with everyone in memory of him. read more »
