3. Sheridan's Ride from Winchester. by Thomas Buchanan Read.
Hurrah! hurrah for Sheridan!
Hurrah! hurrah for horse and man!
And when their statues are placed on high,
Under the dome of the Union sky,
The American soldier's Temple of Fame;
There with the glorious general's name,
Be it said, in letters both bold and bright,
"Here is the steed that saved the day,
By carrying Sheridan into the fight,
From Winchester, twenty miles away!" (Submitted on December 4, 2016, by Allen C. Browne of Silver Spring, Maryland.)
