There is a general the truly does not get credit
for a battle he won, though many did not forget it.
General Rosecrans was the name of the man
who tried his best to follow a Union winning plan.
A convert to Catholicism he did then explore
His role to bring freedom to slaves during the war.
Fifth in his class from a place called Westpoint.
There weren't many smarter than him in that joint.
He designed an ambulance to help those that were hurt,
so that those who fought bravely might not die in the dirt.
He gave kind words to the soldiers that fought.
Loud cheers came his way, as they disliked him not.
In 2013 he finally got a statue in Ohio,
so of his dedication many would know.
So much so many gave during that war,
leaving us plenty of history for our lives to explore.
