With lion heart and frantic mien,
The warrior seeks the battle scene.
To risk his precious blood and fight
For glory and his vaunted right.

Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1861, by E. Rogers, in the Clerk's Office of the District Court of the United States, in and for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

The verses are from an 1864 rip-off of Rogers' idea by Edmund Burke Kellogg and Elijah Chapman Kellogg.
