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!
