Title
The last roll call (the survivor's story)
Additional title: Fifty years ago last Friday, on a wild and stormy day, I was fighting for our colors, many thousand miles away; Tho' we were but one to twenty, still, we beat them - yes, they lost! [first line]
Additional title: Side by side, like a crimson tide, in the days of long ago, On we dash'd and our sabres crash'd, till we conquered ev'ry foe; But one by one ere the fight was done, I saw my comrades fall, And I was the only one left to answer the Last Roll Call! [first line of chorus]
