"We care not whence they came,
dear in their lifeless clay,
whether unknown or known to fame,
their cause and country still the same,
they died - and they wore the gray."

Our dead are mourned forever through all the future ages. In history and in story their fame shall shine, their name shall twine; they need no greater glory, tenderly fall our tears over their lifeless clay here lie the dead who fought and bled and fell in garb of gray.
Ours the fate of the vanquished whose heartaches never cease. Ours the tears, regrets and tears,
their's the eternal peace.
