  • Content: One manuscript leaf, inscribed on both sides, describing a young soldier who died after being wounded during the Battle of the Wilderness during the Civil War. Most of the writing is in an unknown hand, possibly that of "R. H. Foote," whose name appears on the manuscript. The text of this manuscript contributed to "Death of a Hero," which was first published in Memoranda during the War in 1875–76 and later reprinted in Specimen Days & Collect (1882–83) and in Complete Prose Works (1892).
