Early, I've come to drive you from the valley. At night, like theif, of sense bereft. He marched his troops around our left, With orders strict unto his boys, To nothing take't would make a noise." While they were on their mission bent, We Yanks were sleeping in our tents; Until the Rebs with rousing volley, Warned us to sleep was death and folly. Get out, &c." 8" by 4.75."
