united, Called by one glorious name; One banner floating o'er them, From Lakes to Gulf, the same. Leave shop, and bench, and counter; Leave forge, and desk, and field; Leave axe, and spade, and hammer, For weaker hands to wiel Come from Penobscot's pine-clad banks, Where the hardy woodman's axe Hurls crashing down the giant tree Upon the bear's fresh tracks; From the clustered hills of granite, Crowned with the noble name Of him, whose home dishonored Has left to us his fame; From where Ticonderoga Looks out on blue Champlain; From the green shores of Erie, The field of Lundy's Lane; From Bennington and Plattsburg, From Saratoga's plain, From every field of battle Where honored dead remain. Up, Massachusetts! seize the sword That won calm peace and free ; Ense petit placidam sub libertate quietem. 'Tis thine, still thine, to lead the way Through blood to Liberty. On Narragansett's busy shores, Remember gallant Greene; And ye, whose fathers oft he led, Bold Putnam's courage keen.
nderoga and Crown Point, and a British armed vessel on Lake Champlain, which was achieved on the 10th of May following by the Vermont hero, Col. Ethan Allen, at the head of a force of Green Mountain Boys. Massachusetts has matched the 19th of April, 1775, with the 19th of April, 1861; so Vermont now matched the 10th of May, 1775, with the 10th of May, 1841, for on that day, Capt. Lyon, a Vermonter, and U. S. commanding officer at St. Louis, surrounds the rebel camp threatening that city, and captures 800 men in arms. Lyon's exploit, like Allen's, was done mostly on his own responsibility, and without direct orders. Allen, when asked by the British commandant at Ticonderoga his authority for demanding its surrender, could only reply, By the authority of the Great Jehovah and the Continental Congress; and Capt. Lyon, in his summons to Gen. Frost, demands his surrender on general grounds only. Both Allen and Lyon took the enemy by surprise, who capitulated without striking a blow.
