Pledge to the South
To that land every drop of my blood, every fibre of my being, every pulsation of my heart, is consecrated forever.
I was born of her womb; I was nurtured at her breast; and when my last hour shall come, I pray God that I may be pillowed upon her bosom and rocked to sleep within her tender and encircling arms.
