THE ORDER OF THE DAY.           \\\
We go to fight for Freedom, for the Union, for the
Laws, And never gallant soldiers fought for any nobler
cause, With the Stars and Stripes above us, with the
prayers of those that love us, All ready, all steady, we 're marching on our way : The foe will fly before us, and Victory hover o'er
us, For Onward! Right Onward ! is the Order of the
Day.
The call to arms has sounded on broad Atlantic's
shore, We catch its echo from the land that Meams with
golden ore ; From every Northern mountain, from every West­ern plain, We come to clear our country's flag from every blot
and stain. The laurels that have crowned it, the wreaths that
hano; around it, Won by our noble fathers on many a battle-plain, No traitors' hand shall sever, but we '11 battle now
and ever, Till we bring the olden glory to the good old flag
again.
