Westermoreland, NH, July 10, 1810. Age toning. Minor foxing. 1" tear along right edge. General wear.. A patriotic song for July 4th written in twenty numbered stanzas., four lines each. The poem doesn't focus on specific battles too much, but rather the bravery of our men and their Commanders, like George Washington. The song is printed in two columns with as small decorative border in-between the two. Below are excerpts from the poem: "Their hostile banners were display'd, And Yankee doodle then was play'd; But soon their troops in blood did wade, And quickly left their station." - Stanza 4 "So neatly we around them got; We played so bravely with our shot; These rogues they found the fire so hot, They were forc'd to cry for quarter." - Stanza 12 "Brave countrymen, let's drop a tear To th' memory of each friend so dear, Who fell without a dread or fear, Defending of their Nation. July the fourth, of which we sing; The day we sever'd from a king; Be ne'er fogrot while time has wing, To waft it o'er the Nation." - Stanzas 19 & 20 Single sheet, printed in two columns. OCLC 1 (Oct 2019) Not in Shaw & Shoemaker. Measures 10 1/2" x 8 1/2"
