With frenzied imprecations, with savage threats
and sneers, They welcomed to the city the Yankee Volunteers.
So furious grew the multitude, they rushed at them amain,
And a great storm of missiles came pouring like a rain.
Amid a thunderous clamor, such as mortal seldom hears,
They tried to cross the city, did the Yankee VolunĀ­teers.
The murderous storm of missiles laid many a soldier low,
Yet still these gallant hearts forbore to give the answering blow,
Till all the miscreants shouted, " They 're nearly with fears ;
We'll hurry up and finish these Yankee VolunĀ­teers."
But, lo ! the guns are levelled, and loud the volleys
roar, And, inch by inch, they fight their way through the
streets of Baltimore ! 8
