WAR-SONG OF THE UNION. 33
Disgrace and shame upon the traitors rest, Whose parricidal hands assail the nation ; Their names accurs'd, their memories unblest,
Remembered but with honest execration ! No treason e'er so base as theirs — shall we Surrender or forgive ? By Heaven, never ! Arise, ye Free! Our battle-cry shall be The Union, and the Stars and Stripes forever!
March on ! march on ! no cause was e'er so just As that by which we now are call'd to duty; With hearts resolved, in God we place our trust, And soon in all its bright and pristine beauty Again shall proudly wave that flag of light, Which unto foe has been surrendered never ! Arise, ye Free ! Our battle-cry shall be The Union, and the Stars and Stripes forever!
