User Name Thread Name Subject Posted Jack Cornstalk? (4) Jack Cornstalk? 29 Apr 01

I am reading Henry Lawson's poems and trying to sing some of the songs people have made from them. One reference I have come across in at least two poems is to "Jack (or John) Cornstalk".

Is this a character from a song, poem, or literature. I don't remember it from my U.S. childhood, but perhaps it is British or Australian.
