The Battle of Manassas

In the year of 1861,

The country was at battle under the sun.

The Battle of Manassas looked quite clear.

The Yankees would probably win;

Their victory was near.

Lazy people watching in awe,

Changed their minds when Thomas Jackson

Stood as firm as a wall.

As his men from behind him

Charged from fifty feet away yelling, "Woh-who-ey!"

So the confederates won the battle that very day.

As for Thomas Jackson, don't mess with him,

His name is Stonewall; he helped the Rebels win!
