Lest
We
Forget.

(East face)
1861
Not theirs the rush of maddened wrath
that reckless sundered ties of blood,
but honor's beacon showed the path
where dauntless duty stoop.
Through famine years they followed far
where her unswerving banners led -
beyond her glory's flame - tipped star -
behind her - honor's dead.
The years their slow progression keep.
The banner barred with red is furled -
but now its gray clad - soldiers sleep
the heroes of a world
Sr. E.C.
(North face)
1865
United in
the past;
One in the
future.
