On the Death of General Montgomery
By Brian Edwards
MONTGOMERY falls! let no fond breast repine
That Hampden’s glorious death, brave chief, was thine,
With his shall Freedom consecrate thy name,
Shall date her rising glories from thy fame;
Shall build her throne of empire on thy grave:        5
What nobler fate can patriot crave?
