O, sacred spot of Cherokee, Where heroes bled and died! O, cradle of true Liberty, Your glory is our pride! Here freely ran the warm, red blood Of strong, young Spartan men, Whie battling in cold, winter mud, As ritish ranks grew thin. From Carolina's rugged hills, And faithful Georgia's plains, Virinia's far-off winding rills, Men came through drenching rains. Then from historic Delaware, And ardent Maryland; It seemed they came from everywhere, This patriotic band! With Blue Ridge mountians standing guard, And Thicketty near by, Those lean Americans fought hard, That Right should never die! By that old Mills' Gap wagon trail, Brave Morgan charged his men: "We must not fail; we cannot fail! Today we die, or win!" On your immortal hills and dales, Redcoats breathed dying breath, In cattle-pens of ancient rails - And Tyranny met death! We honor partiot sires today, Applauding their renown! and thank Jehovah we can pray Without consent of Crown! A Souvenir of Cowpen Battleround, South Carolina, where American Troops under Brigadier General Daniel Morgan won a signal victory over a British Force commanded by Lieut, Colonel Banstra Tarleton, January 17, 1781.
