Charles C. Cleveland

The Vermont Journal, July 2, 1864.

Killed near Spottsylvania, Va., May 18th, Charles C. Cleveland, 6th Reg't. Vt. Vols., aged 21 years; second son of Capt. Thomas C. Cleveland of Hartland, VT.

When patriots die no eye should weep,
No sorrow for the hero slain;
Brave deeds in sacred memory keep,
And in our hearts we cherish deep
This hope - we meet again.

Virginia's sods his grave must bear,
Yet heaven hath won a sweeter strain,
And something whispering to despair,
That from an orient chamber there,
Floats down - "we meet again"
J. V. B.
