Civil War


Jessica Dawn Clingempeel

It happened, it went. 
It was the Civil War. 
Millions of brave soldiers died to save their country. 
It was a tragic thing but it happens anyway 
To see a loved one go. 
Why is there wars I will never know! 
It occurred in 1861 and didn't end 'til 1877. 
Slavery ended right at the end. 
But what makes a war last so long? 
A lot of cowards who just didn't belong.
