Pleasant McDonald born Nov1839 killed May31,1862 at Battle of SevenPines,VA.The following is a poem said to be written by him while serving in 6th Ala.Infantry.
Sweet Alabama my native land,
How dear thou art to me!
Were all the world at my command I still would cling to thee.
My boyhood's could I forget?
Though I might be forgot.
For those I love are living yet In that dear cherished spot
Though now a man
Where ever I may roam, My heart it never can,
Forget my boyhood's home
One only hope,one only care,
Next that of heaven above- That I might once again be there,
Once more with those I love.
Those kindred hearts,those loving friends
and all my boyish pets,
Would welcome me and make amends
For all my past regrets.
But Oh! It may never prove Again to be my happy lot.
Then all I ask of those I love
One though, forget me not.
