Beneath the starry flag...

In his post Odds 'n Sods:, James Wesley, Rawles points us at a  1893 New York Times article about Krag rifle procurement.

Like to see them do an article today on weapons procurement that was as positive...

Ahem.  I've used the lines
Beneath the starry flag
Civilize 'em with a Krag
before, and have just searched for the full lyrics. 

Apparently, political correctness has been around longer than we thought, and the song was banned...
