John Andre and Popular Culture

John Andre and Popular Culture

Poems were written about John Andre and his captors.  This is one example which includes, among other verses:

On the day of execution, he gazed around awhile,
   He looked on the spectators, and gave a pleasant smile,
Which filled each heart with horrow, caus’d many hearts to bleed,
   For every one wish’d Andre clear, and Arnold in his stead.

John Andre was thirty-one years old on the day he hanged.
