OK THE PEOGBE8S XSX3 CAPTUBB Of
GEN. EARt LORD CORNWALLIS,
who was irresistibly compelled to surrender
himself, with the residue of His Britannic
Majesty's Allies, to Gen. George Washing
ton, at Xittle York, in the State of Virginia,
1. Come saints behold what God has done,
And trust his mighty hand ; .'
The Lord has raised Great JVasbington '
To save our bleeding land.
2. Cornwallis fam'd, that man of might,
Appear'd within our land;
The tories to him took their flight,
And bow'd at his command.
.' ' '" ' i V-"
3. Georgia was easily subdu'd,
And Charleston could not stand ;
Lincoln, the great, the just, the good,
tell into Clinton's hand.
4., Cornwallis then march'd on with speed,
O'er all the sylvan plains ; ,
The sons of liberty did bleed,
And all their hopes were slain.
5. The friends of George no longer hide,
But boldly strut and swell
The rebels they with scorn deride,
jAnd wish them all at hell.
6. At lengfn great Gates appear'd,
Exalted igli to fame ;
The British hero quickly heard,
And met him on the plain.
7. No Bennington's success was there,
Nor Saratoga's songs ;
Cornwallis had no Burgoyne's fare,
Nor Gates the Yankee's sons.
8. All thunder-struck, the battle lost.
Some run, and some were slain ;
Great Gates escap'd upon his horse,
Afraid to own hisname.
9. Then Carolina, South and North,
" Was fill'd with pain and woe ;
The tories seized their neighbour's worth,
And whigs away must go.
10t All our dependence was then in God;
. y--JU Eeard our pensive groan ;
We knew hia hand and felt his rod,
And bow'd before his throne.
11. The war-like Greene, Rhode-Island's son,
Commission'd from on high ;
In this distressing hour did come,
And all our fears did fly.
12. Greene then met Cornwallis in the field,
When blood the earth did stain ;
And Sampson-like, he would not yield.
But slew a thousand men.
13. The smith blew up his fire so well,
Their Iron hard did melt :
Britons his anvil there did smell,
And his hard hammer felt
14. The British Lord then turn'd his course,
And Greene pursu'd as fast:
Had food been plenty for his force,
No doubt he'd slain the last
15. Hia LordBhip's route brought him about,
Into Virginia Land ;
. - . .
i ne awora ana oayonei men was iountt,
In every buckshin's hand.
10. Great "Washington, that Man of skill,
Whom Europe's States revere,;
His Lordship's heart with grief did fill,
For he came marching near.
17. The troopa together all combine,
1 And lav close to York ;
Without the loss of any time,
They all engag'd the work. 1 j
18. Cannon, like claps of thurMer, roar
At Washington's command ;
The earth all stain'd with crimson gore,
Tho Britons fainting stand;
19. Cornwallis struck amongst the rest,
Retired into his camp ;
But balls still whistling round hia nest,
No peace he there could have. '
20. He who once rang'd the country o'er,
Was now confin'd in town ;
Quivering, he stood upon the shore,
For want of elbow room,
21 Ye clouds of heaven distil no rain,
The great Jehovia said ;
While haughty Britons are all slain,
Or bow the stubborn head.
22. Cornwallis look'd both night and day,
To see a British fleet ;
To drive the force of France away,
That he might then retreat
23. But no deliverance could be found,
' - For God had fix'd his fate ;
That he should be a prisoner bound,
And yield unto the States.
, .- i -
24, Where, are my titles and my fame,
The second Burgoyne cries t
I either must survive a shame,
Or fall a sacrifice.
25. Must Buck-skins, Yankees, France and
All join the triumphant sound, (Spain,
Upon the Yankey-Doodle strain,
f That Tm a prisoner bomid t
26. A council th4 of war was held,
And agreed as one,
To drpp their arms Upon the field,
And bow to Washington.
27. Is this the Man, the Man so great,
Who filled our land with woe,
Who threaten'd vengence to the States t
Is he become! so low ?
1 I ;
28. Is Lord Cornwallis overcome,
Who made the earth to tremble t
like Lucifer, hie's fallen down,
And doth him much resemble.
29. No more let j haughty Britons proudly
Of what their arms can do ! boast,
Burgoyne has lost his Albion host,
And Lord Cornwallis too.
SO. No mare shall France be stigmatiz'cT,
Ttnth feoward, rogue, and knave ;
But their good conduct shall be prix'd
Amongst the heroes brave.
. i i
31. Arriold now trembles in despair,
To hear of Briton's loss ;
His heart doth palpitate to hear
Of guineas, rope, and cross.
32. His wooded leg well ne'er forget,
But if we catch the knave,
We'll bury that amongst the great,
The dogs the rest may have.
83. Sir Harry's bull no more shall roar,
No more shall gold be given ;
Now he may sail to Britain's shore,
And carry Arnold with him.
; ; ' i
34. The distant jnations shaltrejoice.
To hear of Washington ;
And join to sing with heart and voice,
The deeds jof eighty-one.
'35. October being big with fates,
Shall Ibe remembered well,
For then Burgoyne resign'd to Gates,
And Lord Cornwallis fell.
36. Our independence is our own,
The Lord hath so decreed ;
King George bids fair to lose his crown,
And North as fair to bleed.
37. No more let Zion heartless grow,
That Godjrejects lier prayer ;
For he hathjsav'd our land from woe,
And fix'd his standard there.
38; Tho' all the nations of the earth,
Should with his church engage.
And breathe out slaughter, war and death,
He'll blasi them in his rage.
39. Not Washington, nor France, and Spain,
Shall hav0, our Saviour says ;
But Christ the Lamb, who once was. slain,
Shall have the total praise.
40, Glory to God, who reigns above,
And sends his goodness down ;
And turns about his wheels of love,
To make his Gospel room.

gave the two congregations a title for
this spot of ground, as the church was
considered a temporary building only,
to be occupied alternately by both these
denominations, each of which expect
ed to erect their own' house of worship
at a later period. The term " Hick
ory Church" also indicates ok. what
perishable material this house of wor
ship was built,, and was in .keeping
with the original idea. It was soon
left unoccupied, and in coarse of a few
years it crumbled into ruins. More
than half a century later a want for a
church to be built on this same site
was again felt, when St. Peter's Luther
an Church was organized, and a more
durable building was erected.
As was the case with all the first
German settlers in North Carolina,
who did 'not bring their pastor with
them, so likewise were the Lutheran
members of the Hickory Church des
titute of the means of grace for some
length of time, and as no other hope
of obtaining a regularly ordained min
ister of the Gospel presented itself,
the members were resolved to send to
Germany for a pastor. In this man
ner they secured the services of Rev.
Adolph Xussmann as their pastor, and
Gottfried Arndt as their schoolteacher.
The new pastor preached but one
year in the Hickory Church to both
denominations, after which some dis
sension arose, and a majority of the
LiuthcranH then resolved to build
church for themselves, and in this
manner originated Zion's Church, bet
ter known as Organ Church. The
members of the German Reformed
Church soon followed the example of
lheir Lutheran brethren, and likewise
built a new church on another location,
which they named Grace Church, but
is more frequently called w The Low
er Stone Church," on account of its
position lower down the stream above
mentioned, and built of the same ma
terial as Organ Church.
Before the buildircrof Orcan Church
was quite completed, Rev. A. Nuss
man left this congregation, and went
as pastor to Buffalo Creek Church, in
The congregation, which now had a
church, but no pastor, sent their school
teacher, Gottfried Arndt, to be ordain
ed to the office of the ministry, in the
year 1775. He served them through
the tryiug period of the Revolution,
until 1780, when he moved to the
Catawba River, residing in Lincoln
County, and laboring in that field to
the close of his life.
We have selected the above history
of Organ Church in this County, not
only for the interesting and valuable
information it gives of its tise and
progress interesting especially to the
descendants of those earnest people
whose pious acts are recorded but to
