O say can't you see, in our twilight's last gleaming,

Our menacing stare, our bombs sent everywhere

Give proof in our fight, we're not gallantly dreaming?

When our land once illumined with Liberty's smile

A foe from within strikes a blow at her glory,

Down, down with the traitor that dares to defile

the flag of her stars and the page of her story!*

O say will that star-spangled banner wave

o'er a land of the sheep, or in triumph

o'er the home of the free, the good, and the brave?

*Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr. (on the Confederacy)
