Sheridan's "Early" Victory


Published by Chas. Magnus, 12 Frankfort St. N.Y.

Sheridan’s “EARLY” Victory.

In the Shenandoah Valley
When the Early morn did break,
Sheridan his troops did rally
On Opequan Creek:-
In their serried columns, surly—
Full of hate and braggart boast,
Marshalled under Jubal Early
Stood the Rebel Host.

In the Shenandoah Valley,
Sheridan the fight began;
Then, on went the desperate sally
Till the Rebels ran!
Russel, on that field of glory,
Bravely fighting, sank;
But his name shall live in story,
In Glory’s foremost rank!

Through the Shenandoah Valley
Sheridan pursued the Foe,
Striking at this foul Rebellion
A death-dealing blow!
To brave Sheridan, give honor!
And unto his heroes all
Who to death or victory followed
At Glory’s bugle-call!
