William Haberlin, originally from Ireland, who was killed on Dec. 16, 1864, at Nashville, Tennessee.
 
Handwritten poem found with photograph:
Now to the field again I'll go,
for the union to defend,
until Jeff Davis is made to know,
his kingdom is about to end.
And now if I would not live,
to hear f[r]eemen shout for joy,
this miniature to you I give,
in memory of a soldier boy.
 
William P. Haberlin.
