    Sources/ReviewsSources consulted by researcher:
    • The Poetry of William Gilmore Simms: An Introduction and Bibliography
    Composition history Old Guard, IV (Dec. 1866), 723-26 [Supplied source of clipping (Kibler 230)].
    Description ''Grows to be present, shorn of every aspect ...''

    Simms has struck through ''Conquered Banner, Love it Still,'' a poem appearing at the bottom of page 726.
    Notes Position: center, upside-down.

    Simms has pasted the complete text of both ''Voices of Solitude'' and ''Chilhowee, the Indian Village'' directly from two issues of the Old Guard as a single booklet.  He has pasted them onto the page backwards, so that the last page of each poem appears first, with the first page appearing last.
