Overview

Excerpt from Ten Years on a Georgia Plantation: Since the War

Brothers Again:

Suggested By Decoration Day, 1877.

I.

Great Land! of all thy children 'tis the part
To give themselves to thee, to shelter thee,
To live for thee, and love with their whole heart,
Or die for thy fair fame, if needs must be:
And of thy children, both from South and North,
Some went to battle called in thousands forth
By thy dear voice, and conquered, though they died;
And some, who heard indeed that solemn call,
But wrongly heard, fell on a vanquished side,
Yet well contented for that side to fall;
Brothers with brothers fought, and in that fight
Let all rejoice who fell, still thinking they were right.
