˹ 286 - And shook it forth with a royal will. "Shoot, if you must, this old gray head, But spare your country's flag,
˹ 543 - BY the flow of the inland river, Whence the fleets of iron have fled, Where the blades of the grave-grass quiver Asleep are the ranks of the dead; Under the sod and the dew, Waiting the judgment day; Under the one, the Blue; Under the other, the Gray.
˹ 51 - I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the United States of America, and that I will serve them honestly and faithfully against all their enemies whomsoever, and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States, and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to the rules and Articles of War.
˹ 286 - Shoot, if you must, this old gray head, but spare your country's flag," she said. A shade of sadness, a blush of shame, over the face of the leader came ; the nobler nature within him stirred to life at that woman's deed and word. "Who touches a hair of yon gray head dies like a dog ! March on !
˹ 543 - So, when the summer calleth. On forest and field of grain, With an equal murmur falleth The cooling drip of the rain; Under the sod and the dew, Waiting the judgment day; Wet with the rain, the Blue; Wet with the rain, the Gray.
˹ 543 - From the silence of sorrowful hours, The desolate mourners go, Lovingly laden with flowers, Alike for the friend and the foe. Under the sod and the dew, Waiting the judgment day, Under the roses the Blue, Under the lilies, the Gray.
˹ 543 - The morning sun-rays fall, With a touch impartially tender, On the blossoms blooming for all : Under the sod and the dew, Waiting the judgment day ; Broidered with gold, the Blue; Mellowed with gold, the Gray.
˹ 9 - John Brown's body lies amouldering in the grave, But his soul goes marching on.
˹ 521 - GENERAL : I have received your note of this date. Though not entertaining the opinion you express on the hopelessness of further resistance on the part of the Army of Northern Virginia...
˹ 13 - State, ay, and all the potent South. On their own heads be the slaughter, if their victims rise to harm them These Virginians! who believed not, nor would heed the warning mouth.
