NUMBER:5963
AUTHOR:James Gates Percival (1795–1856)
QUOTATION:Hail to the land whereon we tread,
    Our fondest boast!
The sepulchres of mighty dead,
The truest hearts that ever bled,
Who sleep on glory’s brightest bed,
    A fearless host:
No slave is here:—our unchained feet,
Walk freely as the waves that beat
Our coast.
ATTRIBUTION:New England.
