True Defenders of the Constitution

"And their deeds shall find a record,
In the registry of Fame;
For their blood has cleansed completely
Every blot of slavery's shame.
So all honor and all glory
To these noble Sons of Ham--
To the gallant colored soldiers,
Who fought for Uncle Sam!"

From: Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906) "The Colored Soldiers."
