©Seth F. Weaver,Sr. 04/28/09. Vivandiere is a term used for women during the American Civil War that would work with the soldiers feeding and giving them medicine. This is the tale of one such “vivandiere” that fell in love with a young soldier. They survived many harrowing and dangerous battles until one dreaded day as she watched safely behind the line a mortar explosion took his life along with eight of his companions. She watched as he lay many yards from her screaming in pain. Ordered to stay where she was, she could not stand to watch her love lie in agony. So she ran towards him when another mortar went off stopping her in her tracks. Now they both lay face down in the bloody dirt slowing crawling towards each other. Now through eternity they still crawl forever getting closer but still decades apart. A Compullage™ work.
