Mocanaqua in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
to our valiant comrades
who died on the field of battle
to all who served the flag of the

in all its wars.
Rest comrades! Rest and sleep,
the thoughts of men should be
as sentinels, to keep your
rest from dangers free"
