1861 —— 1865

In grateful recognition of
the patriotism, services, and
sacrifices of our soldiers in
the war of the Union, we, the
people of St. Joseph County,
have erected this monument.

June 25, 1905

———- ———-

"When the years of Earth are over,
and the cares of Earth are done,

When the reign of Time is ended,
and Eternity begun,

When the thunders of Omniscience
on our wakened senses roll,

And the sky above shall wither,
and be gathered like a scroll.

When, among the lofty mountains,
and across the mighty sea,

The sublime celestial bugler shall
ring out the reveille,

Then shall march with brightest laurels,
and with proud, victorious tread,

To their station up in heaven,
our Grand Army of the Dead."

Will Carleton ("Our Army of the Dead")
