First & Final Verses:

Oh dark the day, and dark the hour

When treason in her height of power

With all her gathered legions came, To waste the North with sword and flame!

Right onward, swift, exultant, proud

Up to yon chain of hills they crowd,

The rocky hills of Gettysburg.

 

In nameless graves the traitors sleep,

Where none shall ever come to weep;

But for her martyred sons, with tears,

A monument the nation rears

And age to age shall pass it down

The story of their bright renown

And everlasting fame shall crown

The rocky hills of Gettysburg.

 

Superb piece for Gettysburg aficionados.  [JP]
