A war broke out around '63
There was no end in sight.
A man, the plan, they disagree
Thats what starts the fight.
The South they knew
They could not win,
So to the North they went
To see a man, to make a plan
To take down all the tents.
To remake
This generous take,
The South agreed to most,
And to create
A new estate,
Together they must boast.
They came up
To reconstruct
To build the Union again.\
With eagar hearts
And new schoo smarts,
They began to grow.
With soil,oil,coal and more
They began to show,
How it is to industrialize
Leading to a grow in size.
