AN ARMY CORPS ON THE MARCH, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: With its cloud of skirmishers in advance
Last Line: As the army corps advances.
Subject(s): American Civil War; United States - History


With its cloud of skirmishers in advance,
With now the sound of a single shot snapping like a whip,
and now an irregular volley,
The swarming ranks press on and on, the dense brigades press on,
Glittering dimly, toiling under the sun -- the dust-cover'd men,
In columns rise and fall to the undulations of the ground,
With artillery interspers'd -- the wheels rumble, the horses sweat,
As the army corps advances.
