New Orleans: Published by A.E. Blackmar & Bro. Lithograph titlepage and sheet music. Title leaf with image of an anchor, bearing the names of Randall and Eaton. At head of title, "To the Maryland Society, Richmond VA." Lightly toned, Very Good.

Randall also wrote the State song of Maryland, "Maryland My Maryland." A few lines: "When the Southern braves are met; There's faith in the victor's stainless sword, There's life in the old land yet!" ..and, "There's life, though it throbbeth in silent veins, 'Tis vocal without noise, It gushed o'er Manassas' solemn plains, From the blood of the MARYLAND BOYS!" The popular song was printed in several locations, including Baltimore, Augusta, Houston.
"It may add something to the interest with which these stirring lines will be read, to know that they were composed within the walls of a Yankee Bastile" [The Richmond Register, quoted in White, 'Poetry Lyrical, Narrative and Satirical of the Civil War' 318].
