Some of the poetry went as far back as 1913. I never grew tired of reading Lewis Paul's work. His poetry at times took me far back into the past and to places like plucking cotton from a field deep inside old Alabama or to an old shack house that he once called his home. An old structure that was often filled with young onery kids and some freshly churned homemade ice cream in the kitchen. Hee! Alot of his poems were about the old south and how it all was back then. I feel that a part of our real American history can be re-discovered from his great poems. Other poems in this book explain alot about the Civil War battles and some hidden information about them, but there were some poems of earlier periods like The Battle Of San Jacinto - 1836 and other historic events that preceeded the great civil war. Some of these poems brought new clarity into my eyes about it all. On a softer note poems like the one called How Long Will I love you? Brought tears to my girlfriends eyes. A wonderful time I had and nothing wasted spent reading from his poetry book. There were 186 poems to enjoy and I counted everyone of them.
