Walter Crane - Baby's Own Aesop - The Trumpeter Taken Prisoner

The Trumpeter Taken Prisoner. Illustration from Baby's Own Aesop drawn by Walter Crane.

A trumpeter was taken prisoner and pleaded for his life, saying that he had taken no part in the fight. But he was executed anyway. The moral is that songs can serve a cause as well as a sword.
