Reel 335, Item 12
Battle of Shiloh Hill
I was just fifteen,
When I joined Andy Jackson's band,
And went to fight the Indians,
In Alabama's sandy land.
I saw the Indians coming,
And heard them give their yell,
And the thoughts that then went through my mind, No mortal tongue could tell.
We fought a full three hours,
Before the fight was done,
But them Indians all was beaten Before the set of sun.
