The five eldest sons of James A. McDaniel, Sr. and his wife Martha Edwards McDaniel
fought for the Confederacy.
This poem by Mandy Ruddick is dedicated to
the James A. McDaniel Family.
Come on home to me my
sleep in peace, lay to rest
for your journey is done
and what I wouldn't give just
to see you at play
in the grasses and fields where
now you must lay
come home to me my
you will not die in vain for battles
and what I wouldn't give just to
rock you once more
in this chair that I sit in
like my mother before
so I come home to you my
the waiting is over and now
we'll be one
but what I wouldn't give just
to be there today
in the fields of Carolina where
now we must lay.

Please keep in mind the difficulties of the era and that sensitivities
still ran high in 1915. You may find it helpful, and will certainly find
it interesting, to read the discussion that was
held on this subject on the
SCMARION-L list in January 2000.

- There are so many web pages out there that deal with the Civil War, and the
URLs keep changing. I've removed the "Links" page for now but may add it back when
there's more time to track them down.
