26 THE STARS AND STRIPES.
Hurrah! hurrah ! for the Union flag,
hurrah! Hurrah for the Union flag, that ne'er
shall lose a star.
And first the gallant Keystone State, from every
mountain-glen, From hill and valley, lake and town, sent down her
stalwart men ; And all New England rose amain, as blew the trump
of war, And raised on high their fathers' flag that knows
no single star. Hurrah! &c.
From Saratoga's tree-crown'd heights, from Monmouth's bloody plain, The men of York and Jersey, too, both swelled the
mustering train, As onward — onward — fierce it rush'd o'er all
opposing bars, To punish those who dared insult our glorio.us Stripes and Stars.
Hurrah! hurrah! for the Union flag,
hurrah! Hurrah for the Union flag, with all its Stripes and Stars!
