E.W. Fraser

E.W. Fraser was in the 4th class at the Arsenal Academy in 1857. This notebook was carried by Col. Louis Bell, commander of the 4th New Hampshire Volunteer Regiment, before it came to The Citadel Archives. The cover reads “E.W. Fraser’s Church Choir”. A handwritten note on the first page of the notebook, dated 1861, reads:

“This book was found in the Adjutants office of Fort Walker - Hilton Head [illegible]. The last poetry being stopped by a variation performed on eleven inch shells [illegible signature].”

The notebook contains lyrics to songs, including:

Stars of the Summer Night
Sister to the Mocking Bird
Dearest spot on earth to me
Lilly Dear
Rock beside the sea

And more. Entries are not all written by Fraser, and are dated 1858 to 1861.
