McCLELLAN

Here rest 15,585 of the 315,555 citizens who died in defense of our country from 1861 to 1865.

"On fame's eternal camping ground their silent tents are spread,
And glory guards with solemn round, the bivouac of the dead."

[West face, top of the arch:]

"Rest on embalmed and sainted dead,dear as the blood ye gave, no impious footsteps here shall tread on the herbage of your grave."
