From the Flag of Secession, the Confederate version of the Star Spangled Banner:
  • "The foul fetid air, Gave proof through the night that the Yankees were there;"
  • "the despot who came to our soil" (referring to Lincoln)
Sticking to the high road, I see. That's right up there with "spurn the Northern scum" from Maryland My Maryland.

The rebels also had their own version of Battle Cry of Freedom (aka Rally Round the Flag). And the yanks had their own version of Dixie making fun of the rebels.
