t on high; The flag of Virginia unfurl to the sky. Shall it trail is the dust, with it's motto so proud? Sic Semper Tyrannis — proclaim it aloud. Wha, matter it now? 'tis no King on his throne, Whose will speaks your fate by his power alone. Will ye bow to the legions who scoff at your right? No — sons of Virginia, come arm for the fight. Did the stars and the stripes lead you on to your glory? Twas the flage of Virginia, go read its proud story: Will you lower it now to the Puritan's power? No — sons of great heroes, now, now is your hour. Great Mother of States, such once was your name. Will you cover it now with the blackest of shame? No — lead the proud van of that brave-hearted band. Who fight for the flage of their own native land. Sic Semper Tyrannis, is this your proud boast? And fear ye the charge of the Northerner's host? No — up with her flag, see her sons rally round; "Let Virginia be free" be the heart-stirring sound. Gloucester county. "Vir
Canst thou read in its motto the warning it gave To such as would dare forge a chain for the brave? Oh, happy boy, in thy childish glee, What is the strife, and the battle to thee? Will thou pardon the mother who dares to repine That the dark thoughts which cross her may never be thine? But I come of a race not tainted with fear, Who shrank not from danger when duty was near; And, child, when thy country is roused for its right, I envy proud mothers with sons in their might. Gloucester County. I'm Growing old,by John G. Saxe. My days pass pleasantly away; My nights are blest with sweetest sleep; I feel no symptoms of decay; I have no cause to weep; My foes are impotent and shy; My friends are neither false nor cold, And yet, of late, I often sight-- I'm growing old ! My growing talk of olden times, My growing thirst for early news, My growing apathy to rhymes, My growing love of easy shoes, My growing hates of crowds and noise, My growing fear of taking col
how to battle for our country and her right; Not veil our heads in darkness and wail Virginia's night. We'd remember we have children — how can they dare forget? Is it case that thus beguiles you? You cannot fear their threat. Weep, Daughters of Virginia! weep for her old renown; Weep that our glorious Mother has lost her ancient crown. But e'en amidst our tears, this we'll remember well, Twas the treason of her children by which Virginia fell. Your mothers and your sisters, your wives and daughters, weep! Can you remember, men, how swords from scabbards leap? Have you forgot your honor, that you meekly bear their sneers? But surely you'll remember now, when you see our bitter tears. Alas! that we should weep, save with a woman's pride, That those we loved had battled for their country ere they died. We'd not forget them in their graves; but tell with swelling heart. How Virginia's sons could bleed and die, but not with honor part. Virginia. Gloucester County.

inia. "Virginia to the rescue." 'tis her children's battle cry; Whose name is it they join with hers as the echoes fill the sky? "Virginia to the rescue," how it peals from hill to sea, As they swear to follow to the death the son of Harry Lee. "Virginia to the rescue," As the sound went through the land, How it raised each drooping heart and nerved each falling hand, When they knew to lead the rescue a hero they should see-- The son of "Light-Horse Harry," of gallant Harry Lee. "Virginia to the rescue." How true the hearts and bold Who answer to the battle cry their fathers heard of old; Before this band of heroes let tyrants turn and flee, They cannot fall, who fight for right, with the son of Harry Lee. Who said that brave Virginia had lost her ancient crown, When souls like these have rallied to give her fresh renown? For now she leads the rescue, ten thousands vow to be As true in peace, as bold in war, as this son of Harry Lee. Gloucester County, Va.,May 15th, 1861.
