"We are a band of brothers, And native to the soil,
Fighting for the property we gained by honest toil;
And when our rights were threatened
the cry rose near and far:
Hurrah for the bonnie blue flag that bears a single star!"

Chorus:
"Hurrah! Hurrah! for Southern Rights hurrah! Hurrah! for the bonnie blue flag that bears a single star!"

---"The Bonnie Blue Flag" by Harry MaCarthy

 

 

 

 

 

"An army in motion is a grand sight, with its long lines of bayonets glistening and flashing in the sun --- the rumbling of the artillery and the noise of the trains --- all conspire
to throw over one a feeling of the greatness and magnificience of war."

--- W.A. Drennan, Adjt. Gen. of Featherston's Brigade
