THE FALL OF VICKSBURG.
BY WILLIAM ROSS WALLACE. I.
POWER, Power, Power !" sing ;
Mighty Cotton is the King: Armed with dungeon, lash, and rack, Bleeding subjects at his back, How he laughs their groans to scorn; They for him alone were born " Cotton 's King ! "
ii.
So the brutal despots cried, Storming in their Godless pride ; Honor, mercy, never known, Justice on a shattered throne, And the only chorus u Might, With his red arm gives the Right " Cotton's King!"
in.
Hark! there is another cry: How it sweeps a tempest by ! See, a Nation fire-eyed stands, Freedom's Charter in her hands !
