WAS MY BROTHER IN THE BATTLE?
2  Was my brother in the battle when the noble Highland host Were so wrongfully outnumbered on the Carolina coast ?
Did he struggle for the Union 'mid the thunder and the rain, Till he fell among the brave on a bleak Virginia plain? Oh, I'm sure that he was dauntless and his courage ne'er would lag, While contending for the honor of our dear and cherished flag.
3  Was my brother in the battle when the flag of Erin came To the rescue of our banner and protection of our fame,
While the fleet from off the ,waters poured out terror and dismay, Till .the bold and erring foe fell like leaves on Autumn day ? When the bugle called to battle and the cannon deeply roared, Oh! I wish I could have sceen him draw his sharp and glittering sword.
