ON!
BROTHERS, ON!

ON ! BROTHERS, ON !
BY SARAH WARNER BROOKS.
Air "Hail to the Chief:'
ON ! brothers, on ! for the flag that is peerless ! Striped from the rainbow, and starred from the sky. On, with a sturdy step ! dauntless and fearless ! On, to unfurl it in triumph, or die ! Honored in all the lands, Now shall unholy hands Trail it, defiled and despised, in the dust ? Down with the " traitor's rag ! " Up with the starry flag! Death for our banner ! and God for the just!
Fiercely at Sumter have thundered their cannon ;
Bravely the guns of our hero replied ! On ! for the ashes that slumber at Vernon ! On! for the city whose name is our pride !
Now let our country's guns
Sweep down the bastard sons ! Woe for her chivalry's flower in the dust!
Down with the " traitor's rag ! "
Up with the starry flag ! Death for our banner! and God for the just!
