My Dear Gait: 

I have read with very great interest your 
poem on "The Battle of Manila Bay," and concur 
with Admiral Coghlan in the opinion that it is 
a correct and most excellent account of the 
battle. 

With best wishes, I am 

Very sincerely yours,

TThey say that no two men can see 

And tell alike what has been done. 
If that be true, I'll certainly 

Be criticised by many a one. 
As I have done my level best 

To stick, in all details, to fact, 
And labored hard to be exact, 
I think my yarn will stand the test.

'Jiff you will listen, I'll portray 
^ The Battle of Manila Bay. 
I ought to tell the tale aright, 
As I was there, and in the fight: 
And thankful I shall ever be 
That fortune thus so favored me! 

[he dash was bold, the deed was great 
We seemed the instruments of fate. 
No matter what events occur 
In future, human hearts to stir, 
The glory of the First of May 
Will shine forever and a day!

all I say I weigh full well 
My words, and will the equal tell 
Of mighty deeds of heroes bold, 
In modern times or days of old! 
Our youth will greet the thrilling tale 
As sailors do the freshening gale, 
And read it, both in prose and rhyme, 
As long as men take note of time, 
And hand it down from age to age, 
A nation's splendid heritage!

wail across the billows came 

From Cuba weltering in her gore, 
And crying out in Freedom's name, 

In untold anguish at our door I 
From northern lakes to southern keys, 

Our sympathy with her distress 

Aroused the people and the Press 
To fury at the cruelties 

That wrung from her this wild appeal. 

A MAN was needed at the wheel. 
A glorious PILOT climbed the side, 

And took us by this foaming reef, 
Unflinchingly the storm defied, 

And stemmed the tide of rage and grief, 
That ever vainly tried to force 
The SHIP OF STATE to leave her course!

then we assembled at Hong Kong, 

And anchored in that harbor grand, 
The finest in the Eastern land, 
We saw that there was something wrong. 
All vessels flew their colors low, 
Half-masted, sorrow's outward show. 
With anxious hearts we watched the scene, 
And wondered what it all could mean. 
The Harbor-master came on board, 
In uniform with trailing sword, 
And said our battleship, "The Maine 
Was sunk, and half her people slain. 
The tide had turned from ebb to flow; 

She swung around, with cable taut; 
A mine exploded from below." 

This tale a sickening horror brought!

he citizens throughout this land 

To-day believe a traitor's hand 
Accomplished what his brain had planned. 
They say that in a moment's time, 
A button pressed had done the crime; 
And in Havana's ooze and slime, 
Our men to sudden death were hurled! 
It shocked and horrified the world. 
If such be true, no record shows 
Its equal and it blacker grows 
For seeming friends are worse than foes: 
With this the FLAG of WAR unfurled! 

2oon after war had been declared 

Our orders came. They said that we 
"Must capture vessels or destroy, 
Our utmost efforts must employ." 

The martial world the judge shall be 
Of what we did and what we dared!

fhen, last of all, the Baltimore 

Arrived, our squadron was complete. 
She brought from home an ample store 

Of ammunition for the fleet. 
She made, according to design 
With transports and the Cutter, nine 
Six men-of-war the fight would share, 
The Cutter would despatches bear, 

And two would carry stores and coal. 
The transports had been cleared for Guam, 

Although Manila was our goal. 
That was a sailor's ancient sham. 
Of old, when ships were passing nigh, 

With "Ship Ahoy!" the first one hailed, 
The second one replied, "Aye, Aye!" 

And if with orders sealed she sailed, 
And " Whither Bound?" came on the breeze, 
She promptly answered, "TO THE SEAS!"

British Governor, courteously, 
Requested us to leave the port 
Within two days, and put to sea 

A strict injunction from his court; 
Because the neutral law was plain, 
That we no longer could remain, 
Since war had been declared with Spain. 

As past the British ships we steered, 
^^ Their sailors manned the sides and cheered; 
Which told as plain as words could tell 
A kindred nation wished us well. 
Our men replied as friend to friend, 
And with a " tiger " at the end!

On board the Raleigh, with a strain 
At starting, gave a warning thump, 

And then a crash, and burst in twain. 
Ashore the broken parts were sent 
To be repaired, and then we went 

To Mirs Bay, thirty miles away 
We nowhere else could have remained 

And there for two days had to stay; 
Because our Consul was detained. 

When war began his work was done. 

He reached Hong Kong to find us gone; 
And when a tugboat started out 

To take him off to where we lay, 
She struck a gale, and turned about, 

And waited for a calmer day. 
Despite the gale, ere fall of night, 

The mended pump was safely brought 

From Kow Loon, where it had been wrought. 
Then all were ready for the fight.

o make it clearer, I will^name 
The ships, as they in sequence, came: 
The Olympia with the Commodore 

The column, natural order, led; 

Her consort, then, the Baltimore 

Sheered off to port, and next to head ; 
The Raleigh followed third, her mate 
The Petrel, fourth, the least in rate; 
The Concord was the fifth to clear; 
The Boston, sixth, brought up the rear, 
Which was the senior Captain's place. 
The proper intervals of space, 
Four hundred yards, were left between 
The ships in line to intervene. 
The First Division this was called. 
The second one then swiftly hauled 
Twelve hundred yards to starboard, well 
Abreast this column, parallel, 
Where, by the Hugh McCulloch led, 
The Nanshan and Zafiro sped. 
The fleet-formation, thus arranged, 
For three long days was never changed.

'he sea was smooth as mountain lake. 
We covered, without stop or break, 

Six hundred miles, a single reach; 
Then sighted Bolinao Cape: 

For ninety more we hugged the beach, 
And had an easy course to shape. 
We often felt a gentle breeze, 

That blew refreshing from the east, 
Not strong enough to crest the seas, 

And when it stopped the heat increased. 
At times the clouds would scurry by, 
And sometimes overcast the sky; 
And once in anger seemed to lower, 

Across them forked lightning flashed, 

And heavy peals of thunder crashed. 
'Twas nothing but a passing shower.

The flying fishes numerous 

And many colored nautilus 
Some interest added to the day. 

Throughout the night the atmosphere 

Was warm, and generally clear. 
With other constellations bright 

The Southern Cross adorned the sky, 
And shed a soft liquescent light 

Not seen where latitudes are high.

[hile on our way along the coast, 

The last two fighting ships were sent 

To reconnoiter Subig Bay 

They turned aside, and in they went, 

To see if there the Spaniards lay; 

For we had heard it was their boast 
That they the place would occupy, 
And any force we had defy. 
Soon afterwards the Baltimore 
Was sent to cruise in near the shore, 
And there to watch, and enter, too, 
As their support if that were true. 
While standing close to Subig's mouth, 
She seized a schooner sailing south. 
The Spanish fleet, the skipper said, 
Was lately there, but briefly staid, 
And thence to southward had returned. 
As nothing further could be learned; 
For this was all he seemed to know, 
The stranger was allowed to go.

Were set inside, arranged in lines, 

The plan of which was so well shaped 

We wonder how our ships escaped. 
They searched the Bay, but saw no sign 

Of Spanish ships. At close of day, 
All took their places in the line, 

And then we hastened on our way. 
Until we could the entrance clear, 
The three reserves brought up the rear; 
Then ranged to port, and took, abeam, 
Position under easy steam.

From far across the China Sea, 
With ships unarmored known to be, 
And we were called the " TIN-CLAD-FLEET."

[ore men, as naval records tell, 

Are killed by splinters than by shell; 
And so, with many a rip and bang, 
The Carpenter's most willing gang, 
As oft was done in days of yore, 
The woodwork from the cabins tore; 
Broke out the stores that freely burn, 
And chucked them overboard astern. 
We seemed to have, without a break, 
Long miles of wreckage in our wake.

The ships showed each a single light, 
That from the stern, shone only aft, 
And served to guide the coming craft. 
They all, like jack-o'-lanterns, sped, 
And held their distances ahead, 
Except the last that did not need 
A light. The Flagship kept the lead.

Was with the fleet its course to lay; 
Each Navigator took his stand 

Upon the bridge both night and day, 
And conned his ship, as taught at school, 
By using compass, chart, and rule.

A bout the time six bells had gone, 
^* We headed for the entrance wide, 
And up the channel, one by one, 

With modern batteries on each side. 
As shadows glide upon the sea 
From scudding clouds, and pass alee, 
We moved on grimly through the night 
Like Nemesis we sought the fight! 

beacon burned upon the Bay; 

But twinkling stars, between the clouds 
That draped both sides in giant shrouds, 
And lightning flashes showed the way; 
The phosphorescence of the deep 
Seemed wakening from its quiet sleep; 
And with a billion eyes to peep; 
The guardian mountains darkly frowned, 
And save the engines' throbbing sound, 
A perfect silence reigned around. 




THE BATTLE OF 
MANILA BAY 



A sudden light blazed on our port, 
And one, to starboard, at the fort; 
A rocket on Corregidor 
Shot up on high. A cannon's roar 
Awoke the echoes o'er and o'er: 
Then, in the darkness, all was still, 
And signals flashed from hill to hill. 

[e scarce had hoped to run between 

The sentries, on both sides, unseen; 
And while we spoke with bated breath, 
As watchers do in halls of death, 
A lurid torch flared from our line, 
And shone upon the rippling brine 
The Cutter's smokestack belched a flame, 
That from the fresh-fed furnace came. 

It glared a target for the foe. 
Then Randall strove to douse the light, 

And from the cruel heat below 
His gallant soul went on its flight!

^ Undaunted steamed our fleet in line; 
* Torpedo, and the boasted mine 
Were naught to men to duty drilled. 
With such defense the foe had filled 

The entrance to the Bay: 
And many a one with wires was set 
About Cavite, like a net, 
To sink the daring fleet that came 
To harvest Eastern fields of fame, 

And break the Spaniards* sway! 

|ur people thought a mine must burst, 

And wondered, " Which ships will be first ? 
But not a word they spake: 
They knew the Captain General made 
All vessels that came hi to trade 
" Torpedo Pilots" take.

At quarter after twelve o'clock, 
~*' And when the Raleigh passed the rock, 
El Fraile, black as friar's frock, 
On which was built a strong redoubt, 
A vivid flash of light shot out: 
A great projectile's scream was heard 
O'er head: It seemed some monster bird; 
And then another, still too high, 
As if his mate, were chasing by.

The first one then to them replied, 

It thundered from the Raleigh's side! 

Before its echoes died away, 

The Concord's guns began to play; 

The Boston next attacked the fort; 

On came the Cutter in support, 

And threw two shells, which were the last. 

The transports on, in safety, passed. 

Our ships steamed in so silently, 

In clouds of smoke, they looked to me 

Like phantom islands on the sea.

seems a just decree of Fate, 

That though three centuries have flown 

Since Raleigh's day, there's nothing known 

In history more appropriate 

Than that, upon a distant sea, 

(To him a legendary world), 

The ship that bore his name should be 

The one from which the shell was hurled, 
To start the fight, that closed the reign, 
In other lands, of ancient Spain; 
At last avenged his death, and wrought 
The very end for which he fought; 
Thus carried out his cherished scheme, 
And realized his dearest dream.

We knew not if we aimed aright. 
The foe shot high, no harm was done 
They answered almost gun for gun, 
And must have thought, when they replied, 
That we would shun the southern side 
Of Boca Grande that's the name 
The channel bears by which we came.

^^ Our hindmost ships were safely through. 
From Subig, after we had slowed, 
The log a rate of six knots showed. 

Our speed had been eight knots an hour, 
The best the Nanshan could have made. 

The signal read, " Slow down to four," 
When up the Bay our course was laid: 

So ordered that by break of day, 

We'd find out where the Spaniards lay. 
The Cutter and the transports knew 

That they must stay well out of range, 
And all the plans that Dewey drew 

Were carried out without a change. 
Then while we scarce did more than creep, 
We piped down for a little sleep, 
Till day should from the eastward peep.

"For general action to prepare:" 
Then straightway to his station ran 
Each eager officer and man!

^ And run aloft, as on we went, 
On every ship from first to last, 
At fore, and main, and mizzen mast, 

And peak, unfurled and trailing aft. 
A sight to make the faint of heart 
Attempt, and DO a hero's part; 
So proudly floated from each truck 
THAT FLAG that never has been struck 

In battle, to a foreign craft, 
Except to overwhelming might, 

When many of our Country's sons 
Were killed or wounded in the fight, 

And few were left to serve the guns!

Dawn all nature painted gray, 
A white mist hung above the Bay: 
It climbed each hill, and filled each dale, 
And clothed the landscape in a veil; 
The City wrapped in deep repose, 
And dreaming not of future woes, 
Was rudely waked. In hut and hall, 
In palace, at the closing ball, 
The boom of heavy ordnance fell 
Upon the air, and broke the spell, 

And told of coming war! 
And as our threatening fleet drew nigh, 
The young and old, the low and high 
Ascended to each roof and height, 
And clustering, watched the wondrous sight 

Of battle from afar!

With mastheads towering toward the skies,

Of different nationalities, 
Whose shape of hull, and stately spar 
Were never made for waging war; 
But sailing ships discharging loads, 
Or waiting cargoes in the roads.

Seven other ships in line arrayed, 
With forts on Sangley Point to aid,

Including gunboats stationed near.

Surrounded by an ancient wall.

Their line of warships stretched away 
From Sangley straight toward Malabay 
On every mast their ensign flew! 

JjT*ike Spaniards in the days of yore, 
^ Their force afloat and on the shore 
Already were prepared to show 
That bravely they could meet a foe; 
And shadowed by the morning gloom, 
They waited for their certain doom! 



A few days later there was found

With other papers strewn around,

At six knots speed (with helms a-port), 
The rate decided on as best 
To fight a hostile fleet at rest, 

A rolling wreath of smoke shot out 
They'd sent a shell, which halfway fell, 

And bursting, caused a waterspout; 
Then came the booming of the shell, 

And afterwards, the gun's report. 
The Concord, and the Boston, too, 
Their largest shell, in answer threw, 
And proved their range and aim were true. 
Those from the dark Luneta fort, 
And from Malate, all fell short; 

So, as we passed them on our route, 
From forms seen dimly on the shore, 
Sprang fire, and smoke, and cannons' roar. 

It seemed a wild and weird salute!

[ith burning rays the rising sun 

Dispelled the mist from land and sea 
Like magic. Then the tropic heat, 
Remorseless, poured down on our fleet; 

And ever hotter grew to be, 
Until the day was almost done. 

The penetrating, fiery beams, 
Unheeded, streamed from torrid sky, 

Though, even through the smoke, the gleams 
Were hot enough the pitch to fry. 

Through hatches, almost hi a glow 

From raging furnaces below, 

And from the blinding, surface glare, 

Arose the palpitating air: 
While sweating, grimy, fighting tars, 

With joke and jest, their hardships bore 
Like veterans tried in many wars, 

Though few had seen a fight before!

And soon the fleets were face to face. 
(Five thousand yards of open space 

Between them lay), then Dewey said, 
"When ready, Gridley, you may fire;" 

And when he'd given the command, 
It seemed that all the pent up ire 

That long had slept, awoke again; 

For, as the men began to train 

The guns, was heard on every hand, 
" Kemember, Lads, avenge the Maine!" 
Before their minds arose anew 
The massacred Virginius Crew. 
All sailors ever thought it wrong 
That they were unavenged so long. 

Like some titanic monster chained, 

And brooding o'er some hideous thing, 
While ever crouching low to spring, 

Eternal memory remained: 

And waxing fiercer day by day, 

Awaited restlessly the time 

When we this sacred debt could pay, 
And from our conscience cast away 

The burden of unpunished crime.

/Tfhen all the ships took up, in turn, 
^ The fight within the firing zone. 
We moved in column, one by one; 
And opening each with forward gun, 

Terrific broadsides soon had grown. 
Along our sides, from stern to stern, 

The dazzling flaming ribbons flashed, 
Like fire from live volcanoes' lips, 

And bursting shell aboard them crashed, 
And wrought destruction on their ships!

About a hundred yards from shore 
From Sangley Point it might be more 
Two mines exploded with a roar 

That almost drowned the guns' reports; 
And like great geysers, upward threw 
The water. Why should just these two 
Have then exploded? No one knew! 

Whatever cause there might have been, 

Its utter uselessness was seen.

From ships and batteries on the shore,

Has there been witnessed such a sight!

Still slanting slightly toward the shore; 
And when abreast the lower fort, 
We put our helms down hard a-port. 
As eagles near their quarry swoop, 
We turned, and made our primal loop; 
With helms amidship, crossed our wake, 
Thus closing in, the fleet to rake.

2oon after we had gone about, 
** A daring little boat came out; 
But ere she could attack our line, 
If that indeed were her design, 

Our smaller guns upon her bore, 
And rained their missiles on her deck. 

She quickly turned and ran ashore 
Her people scampered off to reach 
The fort, and left her on the beach, 
Where she was piled a helpless wreck. 
Another course we took, and then 
We made a loop, returned again 
Each time much closer to our foes 
Each time we struck them harder blows. 

[ost furiously the battle raged, 

With common and with piercing shells 
For full two hours we were engaged 

We fought from three to seven bells, 
And used our shortest range when they 
Were eighteen hundred yards away.

We kept on firing as we ran, 
Save each time when we started back, 
And outward turned to cross our track, 

With range a half a mile decreased. 
The Boston was the only one 

Whose fire, while moving, never ceased. 
The like of this was never done! 

[e plainly saw, as out we went, 

The battered foe was almost spent: 
Yet, hopelessly, with many slain, 
Prolonged the fight with might and main, 

Though several of his ships were wrecks! 
We uttered no triumphant cheer, 
In any ship from van to rear; 
But softly spoke of rising smoke, 
Whose curling columns upward broke 

From gaping caverns in their decks, 
And said, when we had scanned them o'er, 
" A pity 'tis to hit them more 1"

Five times, and made four loops complete, 

The Flagship's signal waved on high, 

" Withdraw from action," to the fleet. 

With helms a-port we stately hauled 
To westward well, and heaving to, 
We kept the smoking ships in view. 
As our unbroken line retired, 
The forts and ships still on us fired; 
Our Boatswains' Mates piped, loud and clear, 
The welcome call to " Spread Mess Gear." 

And all hands soon to breakfast called. 

Our engines stopped the first time then,

To learn if that report was right: 
But, after we had overhauled 

The ammunition of the fleet, 
We found that quite enough remained 
To fight the battle o'er again, 
If we should, later on, be called 

Another such a force to meet, 
Although it were much better trained 

Than any ever owned by Spain. 

'/ftommanding officers repair 

^ On board the Flagship," to the fleet, 
Was signalled for them all to meet, 
And each to tell the Commodore 

The way his ship had done her share 
The damage she, in action, bore.

THE BATTLE OF 
MANILA BAY 







, after all that had been done, 
Each Captain thought that he alone 
Was able to report that none 

In battle had been killed: 
And no one knows the great relief 
To them and our Commander-in-Chief 
Instead of being torn with grief, 

All hearts with gladness filled; 
For, when the first report was made, 

It seemed so strange that none were slain; 
The second one, in order, said 

The selfsame thing 'twas none again; 
The third and fourth said not a one 
Of them was killed by Spanish gun; 
The Flagship had reported "none;" 

The fifth, the same, and just as brief. 

It left a sense of unbelief, 
And stands in history all alone!

fhile, with becoming joy and pride, 

They told their stories of the fight, 
The officer on watch outside, 

Was startled by a welcome sight 
(Cristina was their Flagship's name) 
She suddenly had burst in flame. 
The old Castilla did the same: 
Out sprang the fires, and madly spread, 
And reached from deck to main-mast-head, 
So rapidly, I've heard it said, 
They burned the wounded and the dead. 

And when the leaping flames swept o'er 
These fated ships, explosions broke 

The stillness with their mighty roar, 
And threw up clouds of sparks and smoke!

TThen he into the Council bore 
^^ These tidings to the Commodore, 
Who, when he started to explain, 
Said, " Now's the time to strike again ;" 

And both the general signals made; 
" Get under way," and " Follow me " 
These orders gladly were obeyed; 
For they were what we wished to see! 



after we had started back, 
In single column toward the shore, 
Again " Proceed to the attack " 

Was signalled by the Commodore. 



47 








THE BATTLE OF 
MANILA BAY 



A Ithough we did not look to be 
~* In shape as fine, and so complete, 
As when we steamed across the sea, 

And went to sink the Spanish fleet, 
Our injuries were very small 

Amazing to the last degree 
For one disabled gun was all 

Affecting our efficiency! 
And everybody was alert, 
Excepting seven who were hurt; 
And those prostrated by the heat 
Stood by, their labors to repeat! 
It was by many of us thought 
That this was why the Spaniards wrought 

As little damage as we showed: 
Their armor-piercing shells were used, 
Or else their shells were badly fused, 

And when they struck, did not explode.

Flagship's signal-halyards waved 
The number of the Baltimore, 
With, " Vessel designated lead ;" 
Because she had been sent ahead 

To intercept a ship that came, 
And slowly steamed along the shore 

La Esmeralda was her name. 
Before we left Hong Kong, she craved 

Permission from the Commodore 
To enter, and to take away 
The strangers wishing not to stay. 
The Captain General showed his spleen, 
And made her stay in quarantine, 
Where she had fifteen days to wait; 
For not an hour would he abate.

'he Baltimore then went as near 

The forts as she found depth to run; 
And with her starboard battery clear, 

She opened up with every gun: 
Then slacked her speed, and went dead slow 
We thought she'd got a vital blow. 

The other ships were drawing nigher, 
And straining at their utmost speed, 
To help her if she were in need. 
" She's hurt!" then someone sang out loud. 
" Look ! Look ! She's hidden in a cloud 
Of smoke My God, she is on fire!"

With starboard helm, and cut across, 
And made direct to where she lay, 
Assumed the battle when she threw 
Her last shell as she steamed away, 

Uninjured and without a loss. 
As from the mantling cloud she broke, 
We saw it was her powder's smoke. 

/TThe Raleigh then began to pour 

^ Her broadsides till the forts were passed; 

The Olympia came on with a roar

'he Concord had been signalled, " Go, 
Destroy the transport of the foe, 

Near Paranaque." Off to port 
She turned, and stood well into shore, 

Without a pause at either fort, 
While on her course she swiftly bore, 

On by the Bay of Canacao, 
She shelled the batteries as she passed, 
And stopped, and gave the ships a blast, 
That refuge took inside the pier 
That juts out in Cavite's rear; 

Then went and burned the Mindanao, 
That flew her colors with the rest, 
And through the battle did her best; 
That served her guns with gallant show, 
And stood to share in weal or woe!

With little draft, could safely ride 

In Bacoor's Bay. Well this was done 
She sunk or burned them everyone, 
Except the smaller craft she found, 
And the Manila hard aground. 

A ppealing in Sweet Mercy's name, 
^ The Surgeon and two Sisters came 
From out the hospital on shore, 
In abject terror, to implore 
That we would promise them to spare 
The sick and wounded in their care: 

But, when they had been reassured, 
And told that they need have no fears, 

That we would help to have them cured, 
They brushed away their burning tears.

Had said we came to loot and slay, 
Their church despoil, their homes defile, 
And called us everything that's vile: 

In proclamation freely used 

Bombastic language, full of hate, 

And viciously our race abused 

In choicest Spanish Billingsgate; 

And said the struggle short would be; 

For God would give them victory! 

/Tfhe balance of their naval power, 

^ And both their batteries still combined, 

Were wiped out in about an hour. 

Their plans had fairly been designed 
They thought that it would help them most 
To join the batteries on the coast;

United, with our fleet to cope.

At quarters, just as close in shore 

As each could, with the draft she drew; 
And watched until the Petrel made 
The signal, " White flag is displayed 
On Government Building." Then we stayed 
Until the Flagship, for us all, 
Except the Petrel, raised the call 
To pull out near to where she lay 
Before Manila, in the Bay, 
And "Anchor at discretion," when 
We came together once again.

But, when the Petrel hove in sight, 
And steamed the other ships to meet, 
With many trophies of the fight 
A genuine " mosquito fleet " 

Of motley boats, towed in her wake 
The cheers made every vessel shake 
From royal truck to garboard strake!

TCre battle's smoke had cleared away, 

On sped the Flagship without stay, 
And proudly for Manila steamed. 
Her bristling, burnished ordnance gleamed 

From sides and turrets painted gray, 
And battle flags above her streamed. 

She signalled orders as she went, 
As if dictating destiny, 

And stopped abreast the battlement 
That guards the City from the sea. 

Majestic all alone she lay! 
Thus challenged them to fight once more, 
Then sent the transports nearer shore, 
With Stars and Stripes at main and fore, 
Which was to show them that she meant 
To emphasize the challenge sent: 
But finished was our victory; 
For, LO, there rang out no reply!

'/TThe man behind the gun " has been 
^ Known far and wide a hero true 
He, in the heat, and smoke, and din, 

Did nobly all he ought to do! 
By " Man behind the gun," I mean 
To say Blue-Jacket and Marine. 

^XJut there was one as brave as he, 

Who, stifling in the heat below, 
No thrilling scenes of battle saw. 
With slice-bar, hoe, and devil's claw, 
He kept each furnace in a glow, 
And made the mighty engines go 
That took us on to victory! 

This, faithfully, from daylight hid, 
" The man behind the shovel " did !

And some who are the "IDLERS" called, 
~* Because they do not stand a watch, 
Supplies of ammunition hauled, 

Through ammunition hoist and hatch, 
To feed the ever hungry gun, 
And well this heavy work was done! 

While others volunteered to take 
At different stations, well defined, 

An active part that they might make 

A record for their Country's sake! 
Such duties were to them assigned. 

/7[his memorable FIRST OF MAY, 

Ten thousand miles across the seas, 

America's antipodes, 
Whose sunset gilds our newborn day, 

We showed what GREAT-GUN pointing means, 
And struck the blow that broke the chain 
Which bound the colonies to Spain, 

In both the Gulf and Philippines!

THE BATTLE OF 
MANILA BAY 










And yet, we are not quite elate 
~* We paid a heavy price to Fate; 
For Gridley's sacrifice was dear; 
Though invalid, he would not hear 
To holding back when war was near. 
He did his duty when a rest 
At home with those who loved him best, 

With wife and daughters' gentle care, 
Had given him his health again. 

In battle he must do his share. 
He died, a victim to the strain. 

A Sailor-Captain without fear, 
Of judgment keen, and brilliant mind; 

A man to every shipmate dear, 
A gentleman both true and kind. 

In radiant letters stands his name, 

Immortal on the scroll of Fame!

n every great emergency, 

When we have fought on land or sea, 
A man has come to meet the hour, 
And show the world our latent power. 

George Dewey is the living peer 
Of those great heroes of the past, 
Whose fame will through all ages last, 

Who taught our foes our flag to fear, 

And us, THE STARS AND STRIPES revere! 

When this most glorious fight was done, 

With cable cut, he stood alone. 

Whenever called upon to act, 

He showed the most consummate tact. 

Excelling in diplomacy, 

A statesman wise, he proved to be; 

And though the task he had was vast, 

Made no mistake from first to last; 

But, with demeanor firm and bland, 

Shaped all things with a master hand. 

All hail him VICTOR near and far, 

THE HERO OF THE SPANISH WAR!

The NOBLE things that others do. 
Where'er our striped banner flew, 
A living wreath of laurels grew 

Around its starry crest!

A quarter of his race had run, 
Another naval fight was won 
Another mighty deed was done 

Among the Indies West!

sailors all will gladly own 
That glory was not theirs alone. 
With brains, as well as brawn and bone, 

Our soldiers are the best ! 
Athirst, where tainted waters gush, 
Ahungered, through the thorny brush, 
With song they charged, in dauntless rush, 
Up San Juan Hill abreast! 

As ever both on land and sea 
^^ We've onward pressed to victory; 
So may our flag still glorious be, 
And wave until eternity, 
By future ages blest!
