Have you (or anyone else here) ever seen the poem "When the Boys In Blue
Are Gone" by John Hendricks? He was a veteran of the 89th Indiana.
It was given to me just before a reenactment in Kentucky, in 1993-1994 and
I have carried it with me ever since.
I have also read it to the men at several events, and publicly at different
dedications and ceremonies.
There is not way to improve upon the sentiments of that poem, and to
better illustrate what their soldier life, and experiences meant to them.
It is not overly long and I can reproduce it here it desired.
