The call went out from Richmond,
to townships great and small.
Our Southern land is threatened,
the Yankees tread our soil.
Our boys rose up to meet the foe
and protect our Dixieland.
They forced them out of Sumter,
then Jackson made his stand.
In many different places,
our boys fought valiantly.
In summer heat and winter cold,
with Johnston, Jackson, Lee.
Through many battles won and lost,
For heritage and Southern rights,
they gave their all to save.
It is well that
war is so terrible
else men would
learn to love it

Do our duty in
all thing. You
cannot do more.
You should never
wish to do less.

Well, if we are to
die, let us die like
