Circa 1836; author and copyright unknown. The following version is from the 1955 Mitch Miller rendition
There's a yellow rose in Texas, that I am going to see, Nobody else
could miss her, not half as much as me. She cried so when I left her, it like to broke my heart, And if I ever find her, we nevermore will part.
She's the sweetest little
rosebud that Texas ever knew, Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew; You may talk about your Clementine, and sing of Rosalee, But the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl for me.
When the Rio Grande is flowing, the starry skies are bright, She walks along the river in the quiet summer night: I know that she remembers, when we parted long ago,
I promise to return again, and not to leave her so.
She's the sweetest little rosebud that Texas ever knew, Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew;
You may talk about your Clementine, and sing of Rosalee, But the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl for me.
Oh now I'm going to find her, for my heart is full of woe,
And we'll sing the songs together, that we sung so long ago We'll play the bango gaily, and we'll sing the songs of yore, And the yellow rose of Texas shall be mine forevermore.
She's the sweetest little rosebud that Texas ever knew, Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew; You may talk about your Clementine, and sing of Rosalee,
But the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl for me.

If You Lived at the Time of the Civil War All of the "If you Lived
at the Time of..." books are great for kids, and also a nice, quick read for adults! What I like about them is their layout, which is easy for readers to follow. Each page begins with a question, "Would you have seen a battle in the South?" for example. Nicely drawn illustrations accompany each answer.
Day Of Tears Through flashbacks and flash-forwards, and shifting first-person points of view,

The Boys War With the many boys who fought in the civil war most of them lied about their age. A
lot of them wrote letters or had a diary. Johnny Clem had run away from his home at 11. At age 12 he tried to enlist but they refused to let him join because he was clearly too young. The next day he came back to join as a drummer boy.

The shotgun they give you is useless: you must aim spot-on to affect an enemy, so why not just use the rifle? Grenades are useful at times.
