[Philadelphia]: [Thomas M. Scroggy], 1860s. First Edition. Four verses, in part: "The 'Bleeders' of fighting so often have boasted, But still when we meet them, they never will stand .... The think they are spunky and so very knowing, By threat'ning to whip all the Marshal's Police .... Here's to the Tormentors, so galland and clever, In fighting their foes they will ever stand still...." Typographic ornamental border.. 6" x 5". Sealed in archival mylar. Very Good. Item #039802
