Robert Lewis Dabney, Life and Commands of Lieutenand- General Thomas J. Jackson, Chapter 5: secession. (search)
th O'Brien, warning his race against the unhallowed enterprise, declares that the Moloch of Federal ambition has already sacrificed two hundred thousand Irishmen to it. And still, as the flaming sword of the South mows down these hireling invaders, fresh hordes throng the shores. Last, our country has to wage this strife, only on these cruel terms, that the blood of her chivalrous sons shall be matched against the sordid streams of this cloaca populorum. In the words of Lord Lindsay, at Flodden Field, we must play our Rose Nobles of gold, against crooked sixpences. So that the Confederate States, while, in truth, fighting for the cause of the world, have the whole world to fight against. But how has their heroism been regarded from without? It must be declared (and this fact completes the grandeur of their attitude), that while thus bleeding for the common behoof of mankind, they have received aid from none, even idle sympathy from few, and only neglect and injustice from the go
n the 27th, for the front, under command of Lieutenant-Colonel Francis J. Parker; and orders were received to recruit four new companies, and make it a regiment, which was speedily done. This was what was called afterwards the great scare, and many people blamed Mr. Stanton for the semi-sensational character of his telegraph messages. They certainly created the wildest excitement throughout the Commonwealth; and Boston, in a degree, resembled Edinburgh on receipt of the fatal news of Flodden Field. June 2.—Governor telegraphs General Banks, Williamsport, Md. :— Telegram received yesterday. Surgeon-General Dale has arranged to supply your requisition immediately. I greet you cordially. All honor to our brave Massachusetts men! This was a request to send forward additional surgeons to take care of the wounded in General Banks's command. On the 4th of June, the Governor wrote Colonel George H. Gordon, Second Massachusetts Volunteers, who had command of a brigade und

en in the ranks, eighty-six were killed and three hundred and seventy-six were wounded, leaving only fifty-eight out of the five hundred and twenty unhurt—a record which is the best evidence of the perfect discipline and splendid courage exhibited by that glorious regiment in its first hard fight with the enemy. During this engagement Colonel Anderson seized the flag of the Twenty-seventh Georgia regiment and dashed forward holding it aloft. His men seeing it as the anxious squires on Flodden Field saw The stainless Tunstall's banner white, rushed madly after him, And such a yell was there Of sudden and portentous birth, As if men fought upon the earth And fiends in upper air. Before their resistless sweep the stubborn foe reeled and fled, and the colors which Anderson bore were planted on their breastworks. Such men were worthy of being commanded, as they were, by the bravest of the brave, and the cordial thanks and commendation of a division commander, who was not give

what he attributed the growth, greatness, prosperity and strength of the American people, his reply would be, I ascribe it all to the superiority of their women. That strength and courage which she displays in aiding us in founding States and Empires will melt at times into tenderness and love, which seem borrowed from Heaven and the angels. Who has not had his heart touched and his eyes moistened by the lines of Scott's famous poem? When Marmion lay gasping for his last breath on Flodden Field, deserted by the pages and squires his halls had nursed and fed, without a friend to close his fading eyes, to bathe his gory face, or slake his dying thirst, the injured Clave, struck with a spark of divine pity which extinguished every feeling of resentment, discharged offices which the ingratitude of man denied to a benefactor. How true are the lines! O, woman! in hours of ease, Uncertain, coy, and hard to please, And variable as the shade By the quivering aspen made, When pain
