Alpine in Brewster County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
This Enduring Monument
Faced with this tremendous task our nation fought the most altruistic wars of the century. Thousands of our heroes are dead—they died for liberty—they died for us and other countries—they are at rest—many sleep in the lands they made free under the flag they rendered stainless—under the solemn pines and the drooping willows—they sleep beneath the shadows of the clouds each in the window—less palace of rest. Our sentiment for soldiers living and dead; cheers for the living; tears for the dead.
