Image of The Bonnie Flag with the Stripes and Stars

Sheet music from the Civil War North often featured illustrations of the U.S. flag.

The third verse reads:

We do not want your Cotton, we care not for your slaves

But rather than divide this land, we’ll fill your southern graves

With Lincoln for our Chieftain, we’ll wear our country‚Äôs scars

We rally round that brave old flag, that bears the Stripes and Stars!
