By 1861, Valentine's Cards were being sold to soldiers to send to their faraway sweethearts.

The small paper insert reads:

Fondly I gaze in
Thy sweet face,
And clasp thy little
Hand in mine,
Love swiftly speeds
Us to the place
Where I shall claim
My Valentine.

"Tell him if he cannot hold his ground, then the bridge, to the last man! -- always the bridge! If the bridge is lost, all is lost!"
Name the speaker, the person to whom the message was sent, and the battle.
