SONG OF THE ANDERSON ZOUAVES. 63
SONG OF THE ANDERSON ZOUAVES.
BY MISS EDDA M1DDLETON.
Tune — " The Red, White, and Blue:'
"WHEN Sumter, the shrine of the nation,
Was struck by black Treason's command, And our flag, from its world-renowned station,
Was dragged and defiled in the sand, A shout that presaged desolation
To the homes of the traitorous crew Shook the earth to its firmest foundation — The shout for " the red, white, and blue." Chorus — Three cheers for the Anderson Zouaves ! Three cheers for the Anderson Zouaves! Our flag shall yet wave over Sumter, Placed there by the Anderson Zouaves.
And when our strong Temple was burned
And battered by Treason's red hand, Its flames to fierce lightnings were turned,
Its smoke to black clouds o'er the land The storm iron hailstones was spouting,
As south on the north wind it flew ; And iron-mouthed thunders were shouting,
" All hail! to the red, white, and blue."
