4 3/4 x 10 1/2, imprint.
Titled, "Da Vis!" this 1862 dated imprint has a vignette at the top of the Maryland State flag. It reads in part: Sons of the Palmetto, we call upon you. We call upon Georgia, the gallant and true, Virginia, our mother, we call upon thee, And the lone star of Texas, and brave Tennessee, State of the Pelican, State of the Pine, Quickly to rescue your proud hosts combine! Mississippi, Arkansas, we know will be true, And brave Alabama, we count upon you, Then there's Florida too, ever ready at need, Must ne'er leave the field until Maryland's freed, We've panted long, tho' hoping still, We lack the power, not the will. Kentucky, Missouri we'd call for your aid, But you both were like Maryland basely betrayed; We're ready and willing to battle for right, To conquer or die in the South's holy fight, Then give but a chance, tis all we ask, Let retribution be our task! Baltimore, Feb. 10, 1862.
