#62: "Our Christmas Tree" and "The Prisoner of War" by Fitz-James O'Brien

"Our Christmas Tree" is a poor but proud man's comparison of his Christmas tree to a millionaire's.

"The Prisoner of War", which O'Brien wrote in December 1861, is about a Union soldier whose best friend is imprisoned down South.
