It had been the rule, it seemed like law – since man’s time here on earth.
Man would enslave man; they say it centered on some men’s worth. The world had always taken slaves; twas the natural law you see. Slavery was the rule – it would be for eternity! It was whispered on the breeze; there was change in the air. America would test if all men could stand; it’s soul would be laid bare. Man had talked against this sin; he had raised his voice on high. It was action that was needed – one could feel that war was nigh. The battles were long in coming; the world had not stood tall. On the battlefields in America brave hearts would stand then fall. Many spoke of a lasting change; a sacrifice worth dying for. Marching columns of Grey and Blue would decide if slavery would be no more. Battles would rage – blood would flow – it would be for many a day. This would be to the death; there are times only blood can show the way. Who says man can make this change – that slaves shall now be free? It’s those who fought and died – it’s they that so decree! No more was slavery the standard; no more the bending of the knee. Slavery was abolished – no more shall that law be. We must all remember; when nations finally stood. To go against this curse of man; to show the world man could. The world had long allowed this sin; forever man’s darkest mark. Man would change – he would see; a pathway through the dark. And so it was on fields of red during great battles of Grey and Blue. The world would see how a nation changed – now the world must start anew!
