Isaac McLennan. (1806–1899)
    New England’s dead. New England’s dead!
  On every hill they lie;
On every field of strife, made red
  By bloody victory.
          New England’s Dead.
    The land is holy where they fought
  And holy where they fell;
For by their blood that land was bought,
  The land they loved so well.
          New England’s Dead.
