Title: The Alabama
Composer : F.W. Rosier

Abstract: This song was inspired by the CSS Alabama, a Confederate ship that roamed the seas capturing, looting and burning Union ships during the Civil War. It is dedicated "To the Gallant Captain Semmes, His Officers, and Crew and to the Officers and Seamen of the C.S. Navy" The line "To death we will defend her; Facing the foe, down, down we'll go, But still cry 'No Surrender!'" is indicative of its demise - its only loss was its last - sunk by the USS Kearsarge.
