THE CHARGE AT PORT HUDSON"Niggers won't fight" ah ha! "Niggers won't fight" ah ha! "They are no good for war, One in a hundred." Let Mississippi's shore, Flooded with negro gore, Echo back evermore: See our six hundred. Firm as the granite rock, Full to the cannon's shock, With a faith none dare mock, Earth's ties all sundered; Every man firm in his place Staring death in the face, Battling for home and race Marched our six hundred. Crash falls the iron hail, Making the stoutest pale, All but the bravest fail, Old veterans wondred. Fighting with purpose high, Fighting until they die, Bravely for liberty, Fell that six hundred. Villians that shun the light, Traitors who hate the right, Cowards who dare not fight, Own that ye blundered. Spurning the name of slave, Bravest amid the brave, Each fills a soldier's grave, Noble six hundred.
