In your veins the blood still flows Of brave men who once arose— Burst the shackles of their foes;
Honest men and free Rise, then, in your power and might, Seek the spoiler, brave the fig-lit; Strike for God, for Truth, for Right:
Strike for Liberty !
LEE AT THE WILDERNESS.
By Miss Mollie E. Moore.
'Twas a terrible moment!
The blood and the rout! His great bosom shook
With an awful doubt. Confusion in front,
And a pause in the cries: And a darkness like night
Passed over our skies :
There were tears in the eyes Of General Lee.
As the blue-clad lines
Swept fearfully near, There was wavering yonder,
And a break in the cheer Of our columns unsteady:
But " We are here ! We are ready With rifle and blade!"
Cried the Texas Brigade To General Lee.
