de to this sweeping statement. The earliest poem of the conflict deserves to be treasured as one of its proudest memories. James Ryder Randall's fervid call of Maryland, my Maryland will live, by reason of its martial ring and splendid vigor, long after the last vestige of the hostility that evoked it has passed away. The otherMaryland will live, by reason of its martial ring and splendid vigor, long after the last vestige of the hostility that evoked it has passed away. The other notable song is Julia Ward Howe's Battle hymn of the Republic, whose swinging, deep-toned measures form a significant contrast to Randall's high-pitched lyric. The two poems are, indeed, typical of the two sections. One surges forward with the fire and dash of Southern temperament through an impassioned Walt Whitman duringngton, North Carolina, and the Bermudas, which was captured in November of the same year. Thereafter Lanier was imprisoned for four months in City Point Prison, Maryland. On securing his freedom he was emaciated to a skeleton, with the seeds of tuberculosis already developing. After the war he studied law with his father and pr
rites that the Valley campaign saved Richmond. In a few short months the quiet gentleman of Lexington became, in the estimation of friend and foe, a very thunderbolt of war; and his name, which a year previous had hardly been known beyond the Valley, was already famous. Jackson had been in command of the Southern forces in the Valley since the beginning of 1862. for the Confederate Government the Shenandoah region was of the greatest importance; it afforded an easy avenue of advance into Maryland and the rear of Washington, and was the granary for all the Virginia armies. When McClellan with his hundred thousand men was advancing upon Richmond, which seemed certain to fall before superior numbers, Jackson prevented the junction of the Union armies by a series of startling achievements. On May 8th, by a forced march, he took the Federal force at McDowell by surprise, and despite a four hours resistance drove it back in defeat. He followed up the retreating troops. In the early mo

Maryland, even in war-time, was always conscious of thnd! Come! for thy dalliance does thee wrong, Maryland! Come to thine own heroic throng, Stalking wi, Maryland! Virginia should not call in vain, Maryland! She meets her sisters on the plain,— Sic sem my Maryland! I see the blush upon thy cheek, Maryland! For thou wast ever bravely meek, Maryland!

sun The column is standing ready, Awaiting the fateful command of one Whose word will ring out To an answering shout To prove it alert and steady. And a stirring chorus all of them sung With singleness of endeavor, Though some to The Bonny blue flag had swung And some to The Union for ever. The order came sharp through the desperate air And the long ranks rose to follow, Till their dancing banners shone more fair Than the brightest ray Of the Cuban day On the hill and jungled hollow; And to Maryland some in the days gone by Had fought through the combat's rumble, And some for Freedom's battle-cry Had seen the broad earth crumble. Full many a widow weeps in the night Who had been a man's wife in the morning; For the banners we loved we bore to the height Where the enemy stood As a hero should, His valor his country adorning; But drops of pride with your tears of grief, Ye American women, mix ye! For the North and South, with a Southern chief, Kept time to the tune of Dixie. Wallace
ould you die for love of these, We'll waft your names upon the breeze: The waves will sing your lullaby, Your country mourn your latest sigh. We'll be free in Maryland Robert E. HoltzJanuary 30, 1862 During the years of the war nearly every musician was intent on composing a new national song. Of the many compositions offered the public, curiously enough, practically none of the more ambitious attempts survive, while catchy doggerel such as We'll be free in Maryland is still sung far and wide. The boys down south in Dixie's land, The boys down south in Dixie's land, The boys down south in Dixie's land, Will come and rescue Maryland. Chorus— If yMaryland. Chorus— If you will join the Dixie band, Here's my heart and here's my hand, If you will join the Dixie band; We're fighting for a home. We'll rally to Jeff Davis true, Beauregard and Johnston, too, Magruder, Price, and General Bragg, And give three cheers for the Southern flag. Sleeping for the flag Henry Clay Work Henry C. Work's
