The charge renewed.

With a ‘Hi-ye-yi’ the assault was renewed. ‘My Maryland’ merged into a medley of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner,’ ‘Dixie,’ ‘Yankee-Doodle,’ and other inspiring strains during the day of combat and conflict of Confederate and Federal, and there were cheers and good nature for everybody. If it is given to the spirits of great commanders to sit at the banquet board with the followers and admirers still in the flesh, General Robert E. Lee must have kissed the phantom-blade in salutation to the noble men whom he often led.
