Time Travel – A poem about Sarah Glueck, the “Barbara Fritchie” of Lady Grey


When you talk of deeds of glory

Of this campaign in the South,

Where the deeds seem super human

In the battle and the fray,

You’ll remember one brave woman

In the town of Lady Grey.

It’s the olden, golden story

Of the weak who can be strong;

It’s the deed that rates the glory

Of the brightest wealth of song;

It’s the old world-you can hear it,

Working with us here today;

It is Barbara Fritchie’s spirit,

In the town of Lady Grey
