Side 761 - Over the heads of the rebel host. Ever its torn folds rose and fell On the loyal winds that loved it well ; And through the hill-gaps sunset light Shone over it with a warm good-night. Barbara Frietchie's work is o'er, And the Rebel rides on his raids no more. Honor to her ! and let a tear Fall, for her sake, on Stonewall's bier.
Side 760 - It shivered the window, pane and sash; It rent the banner with seam and gash. Quick, as it fell, from the broken staff Dame Barbara snatched the silken scarf. She leaned far out on the window-sill, And shook it forth with a royal will. "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...
Side 759 - Fair as a garden of the Lord To the eyes of the famished rebel horde On that pleasant morn of the early fall When Lee marched over the mountain wall, Over the mountains winding down, Horse and foot into Frederick town.
Side 760 - In her attic window the staff she set. To show that one heart was loyal yet. Up the street came the Rebel tread, Stonewall Jackson riding ahead. Under his slouched hat left and right He glanced; the old flag met his sight. 0 Halt! " — the dust-brown ranks stood fast •Fire!
Side 573 - Come, humble sinner, in whose breast A thousand thoughts revolve; Come, with your guilt and fear oppressed, And make this last resolve. 2 I'll go to Jesus, though my sin Hath like a mountain rose, I know His courts, I'll enter in Whatever may oppose.
Side 327 - I am not eager, bold, Nor strong — all that is past; I am ready not to 'do At last, at last. My half day's work is done, And this is all my part ; I give a patient God My patient heart, And grasp His banner still, Though all its blue be dim ; These stripes, no less than stars, Lead after Him.
Side 139 - One afternoon, just before the evacuation, when the atmosphere of our rooms was close and foul, and all were longing for a breath of our cooler northern air, while the men were moaning in pain, or were restless with fever, and our hearts were sick with pity for the sufferers, I heard a light step upon the stairs; and looking up I saw a young lady enter, who brought with her such an atmosphere of calm and cheerful courage, so much freshness, such an expression of gentle, womanly sympathy, that her...
Side 85 - I prefer to give you money, if it will do as much good." " Very well ;. then give money, which we need badly, and without which we cannot do what is most necessary for our brave sick men." " Then I will give you the entire earnings of the next two weeks. I'd give more, but I have to help support my mother, who is an invalid. Generally, I make but one vest a day, but I will work earlier and later these two weeks.
Side 86 - Opening her portemonnaie, she counted out — how much do you think, reader? — nineteen dollars and thirty-seven cents ! Every penny was earned by the slow needle, and she had stitched away into the hours of midnight, on every one of the working days of the week. We call that an instance of patriotism married to generosity. SOME farmers...
Side 329 - ... was managed at first : The surgeons left in care of the wounded three or four miles out from the town, went up and down among the men in the morning, and said, 'Any of you boys who can make your way to the cars can go to Baltimore.' So off start all who think they feel well enough ; anything better than the 'hospitals,' so called, for the first few days after a battle.
