1st LT Cornelius A. Shultz
United States of America
US Civil War
Served with CO B, 9th BN North Carolina Sharpshooters. Lost an arm and became a jailer in Greensboro, NC.
Jul 26, 1994 He struggles across the fieldIn his suit of butternut gray.He's already wounded twice,But that won't keep him from the fray.They call him, Johnny Reb,And that's what he's proud to be.He'll gladly give up his lifeTo keep his pride and liberty.He stumbled and he fell,Yet, rose again to climb the hill.The courage within his heartIs more abundant than the blood he'll spill.He lets loose one last Rebel yellAnd falls upon his hated foe.Another ball takes his life,But he won't go alone to that home of the soul.Just like his Rebel spirit,That rises to live again on high.The South will rise once moreBecause its spirit will never die.
