LITTLE SOLDIERS' AB C.


A is for ARTILLERY, whose shot can lay low,
When skilfully aimed, whole ranks of the foe.
B is for BUGLER, whose bugle-notes clear
Are signals the horsemen obey when they hear.
C is for Camp. Its fires, burning bright,
The soldiers to rest and refreshment invite.
D is for DRUMMERS, each beating his drum,
To mark time for the soldiers as forward they come.
E is for ENGINEERS, hardy and skilled;
Fortifications and bridges they build.
F is for FORAGERS. When a land is invaded,
Its farms for provisions and fodder are raided.
G is for GUARD, who sharp watch must keep,
And never be caught, while on duty, asleep.
H is for HUSSARS. Those pictured are Danes,
But every great army some of them contains.
I is for INFANTRY; foot soldiers are they,
SMost numerous of all an army's array.
J is for JAEGER, who is spry and alert,
And as a sharpshooter very expert.
K is for KOSACKS, Russian soldiers renowned;
Their equals as horsemen can hardly be found.
L is for LANCER, whose pennon streams gay
From the tip of his lance, as he rides on his way.

LITTLE SOLDIERS' AB C.
M is for MARCHING. A long weary tramp
Troops oft have to make, ere they stop to encamp.
N is NATIONAL GUARD, the force of our States;
To resist all invaders, prepared well it waits.
O is for ORDERLY, watchful and brisk:
Dispatches he carries, oft running great risk.
p is for PRISONERS, seized in the fray;
Until they're exchanged, in prison they'll stay.
is QUARTERMASTER, who shelter provides,
And food, transportation, and clothing besides.
R is for RIFLEMEN, with long rifle each,
Whose shot seldom fails its object to reach.
S is for SKIRMISHERS, who forward are sent
In advance of a column, surprise to prevent.
T is for TRUMPETER, with trumpet in hand
To sound to the horsemen the leader's command.
U is for UHLANS. The soldiers so named,
For skill and boldness in scouting are famed.
V is for VOLLEY, whose deafening rattle
Contributes so much to the din of a battle.
W is for WAGON. Ammunition's its load,
Dragged by strong horses along the rough road.
X is for XERXES, a Persian of old:
He led armies the vastest that e'er were enrolled.
y is for YATAGHANS, blades broad and keen;
In Eastern lands only in use they are seen.
Z is for ZOUAVES. Their uniform's bright,
Which is nice for parade, but no help in a fight.
