The Amherst Record for 18 August 1880 notes: "The poor Indian has arrived and a party of some such nationality is in camp at East Street." "Little Annie" was "The Baby of the Regiment" in Higginson's Army Life in a Black Regiment (1870). The quotation from Henry Vaughan is from the third stanza of "They are all gone into the world of light," and reads: "My days, which are at best but dull and hoary."
