i' CAPITAL CITY COURIER -nrt Vol. 3. No 'JA, Lincoln, Nicukasica, Satukday, May liO, 18B8 Phioic Fivic CiCN'ra (When MnJ Anderson took possession of Fort Sumter, the whole command assembled and knelt Mound the flagstaff while tho chaplain offered prayer, previous to tbo raising of Uie.tUR.J The gray light of dawn o'er tho rampart waa stealing, Whero Bumter Its atem rocky walla lifted high, Aad ipread lu aoft haze o'er tho noble there kneeling jkad Towing their flag to defend or to die. The low toIco of prayer morning stillness waa breaking, As solemnly bowing a blessing they craved. Then rose a glad shout, all the echoed awaking, As, proudly unfolding, their flag o'er tham waicd. Hurrah for tho banner thus boldly left flowing And flinging Its bright stars and stripes to th sky; Hurrah for tho heroes, no flinching o'er showing, Who'll guard It unstained, or lu death coldly lie. Dear flag of our country, shall focmen assail yo And every bright drop In our hearts fall to bum? Shall rebels beneath you o'er beat their rovctllo And wo not In triumph their lnsolenco spurn? By the graves of our fathers, who died In do fending Thy fame, to their deepest affections so dear, And whoso voice from their grass covered hil locks ascending la eloquent pleadings for theo wo now bear; By tho future which stretches In rlita bofore us, By the echoes which sound from a glorious pat In purity still shall thy folds yet wave o'er us, Or, drenched hi our Ufo blood, enshroud ua at last.
