True To His Colors

Book cover
Published, 1889.(From the beginng) CHAPTER I. ALL ABOUT THE FLAG."Rodney Gray, I am ashamed of you; and if you were not my cousin, Ishould be tempted to thrash you within an inch of your life.""Never mind the relationship. After listening to the sentiments you havebeen preaching in this academy for the last three months, I am moreashamed of it than you can possibly be. You're a Yankee at heart, and atraitor to your State. Let go those halliards!""I'll not do it. Look here, Rodney. Your ancestors and mine have foughtunder this flag ever since it has been a flag, and, if I can help it,you shall not be the first of our name to haul it down. Let go yourself,and stand back, or I will throw you over the parapet.""But that flag doesn't belong up there any longer, and I say, and we allsay, that it shall not stay. Here's our banner; and if there's a warcoming, as some of you seem to think, it will lead us to victory onevery battle-field." --This text refers to the Kindle Edition edition.
