This is a Confederate laugh at the Union defeat at Manassas. "Says Greely to Scott, to Richmond, why not, / These Southern's are only in fun, / Your soldiers and donkeys are every one spunky, / And before them Virginians will run."
"The Congress was there and thought they would share, / The honor's of battle when won, / But the running was tall by Congressmen all, / As they scampered away from Bull Run.
Rudolph says, "The text is the same as that of 'The Battle of Leesburgh'."
