No ! yours be the honor now to raise
Those " Stars and Stripes," so loved by all;
And swear by Him who rules on high, By thern to live or with them fall.
Then rally to our standard, boys,
Ye gallant ones and true ; There is " Captain Jack " of Co. K,
Who will gladly welcome you ; We're going in the " Fortifications," boys ;
These tidings sure will please ; But mind it's not at Washington,
But those of Rebel General Lee's. Camp, near Culpepper, Va., March 12,1864.
MY country, 't is of thee, Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing: Land where my fathers died, Land of the Pilgrims' pride, From everv mountain-side,
Let freedom ring.
