In addition to the sentiments common to most patriotic poems of the day, "March Along" gives vent to the North's anger against Great Britain, which at the time this piece was written was still considering recognizing the Confederacy as an independent nation and intereving in the War on its behalf.

This poem was taken from Boker's Poems of the War, published in 1864 by Ticknor and Fields (Boston).
