The reduction of Charleston, South Carolina, by the British, in 1780, was the subject of numerous songs and poems. The subjoined specimen was written by an officer of the royal army, and first published in a ballad-sheet, set to the tune of the " Watery God."
A SONG ABOUT CHARLESTON.
King Hancock l sat in regal state. And big with pride and vainly great,
Address'd his rebel crew, These haughty Britons soon shall yield The boasted honors of the field,
While our brave sons pursue.
