Sourced[edit]

  • The despot’s heel is on thy shore,
    Maryland!
    His torch is at thy temple-door,
    Maryland!
    Avenge the patriotic gore
    That flecked the streets of Baltimore,
    And be the battle-queen of yore,
    Maryland, my Maryland!
  • My Maryland; reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
  • Hushed in the alabaster arms of Death
    Our young Marcellus sleeps.
  • John Pelham; reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
  • Gentlest and bravest in the battle-brunt—
    The Champion of the Truth—
    He bore his banner to the very front
    Of our immortal youth.
  • John Pelham; reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
