Contents: pt. 1. The march up. People who will not give in ; There was never such men in an army before ; This Campaign is going to end this show ; A perfectly surplus body of men ; Victory will inevitably attend our arms ; A goggle-eyed old snapping turtle ; A universal panic prevails ; You will have to fight like the devil to hold your own -- pt. 2. The first day. The devil's to pay ; You stand alone, between the Rebel Army and your homes! ; The dutch run and leave us to fight ; Go in, South Carolina! ; If the enemy is there to-morrow, we must attack him -- pt. 3. Day two. One of the bigger bubbles of the scum ; You are to hold this ground at all costs ; I have never been in a hotter place ; The supreme moment of the war had come ; Remember Harper's Ferry! ; We are the Louisiana Tigers! ; Let us have no more retreats -- pt. 4. The third day neral plan of attack was unchanged ; Are you going to do your duty today? ; The shadow of a cloud across a sunny field ; As clear a defeat as our army ever met with ; There is bad faith somewhere ; To sweep & plunder the battle grounds.
