Maryland My Maryland

James R. Randall, a native of Baltimore, was in Louisiana when he heard that the Southern States had seceded from the Union. That night, in a fervor of patriotic zeal, he was inspired to write the verses that have made his name a household word throughout the length and breadth of Dixie. He mailed a copy to a friend in Baltimore, where it was immediately published without his knowledge.
