Excerpt from "Under Three Flags," Indiana: Adapted From Cottman-Hyman Centennial History of Indiana
God bless old indiana, child of the pioneers, in the solitude of swamp and wood they builded for future years; braving the dangers of track Iess wilds, patient to work and wait, till the clearings about their cabins merged into a mighty State.
God bless old indiana, hers is no heritage of blood - bought glory of kingly lines come down from another age; but hers is the glory of empire won for the happiness of men, .oi cities builded, and harvests reaped, where once there were bog and fen.
God bless old indiana, hers are no cities great, wh-ere crime and poverty cast the shadow of suffering turned to hate; but hers is a country of open skies, and of open heart and hand, where God's own sunshine unhindered falls on another Promised Land. George B. Lockwood.
