Elmer Ephraim Ellsworth, a friend of Abraham Lincoln, was the Commanding Officer of the 11th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment, a Zouave unit. He was killed shortly after his regiment arrived in Washington and began the occupation of Alexandria, Virginia. While securing Alexandria, Ellsworth noticed a Confederate flag flying above an inn. Ellsworth, assisted by three of his men, climbed to the roof where he cut down the flag. On their way back downstairs, Ellsworth was killed by a shotgun blast to his chest. Corporal Francis Brownell (to whom this music is dedicated) immediately killed the innkeeper who had shot Ellsworth. As of 2016, 19 are held by institutions per OCLC although some without the color cover; none in the trade and no auction results since 1968 per the Rare Book Hub. (Inventory #: 008432)
