Bainbridge in Chenango County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Bainbridge New York Civil War Memorial
To The Brave
— 1861-1865 —
In Memory Of Those Who Gave
Their Lives To Save Their
The Hon Henry A. Clark
The muffled drums sad roll has beat
The soldier's last tattoo,
No more on life's parade shall meet
The brave and fallen few.
On Fame's eternal camping ground
Their silent tents are spread,
And glory guards with solemn round,
The Bivouac of the Dead.
Your marble minstrel's voiceless stone
In deathless song shall tell,
When many a vanquished year hath flown,
The story how ye fell;
Nor wreck, nor change, nor winter's blight,
Nor time's remorseless doom,
Can dim one ray of holy light
That gilds your glorious tomb.
Erected 1904 by The Hon. Henry A. Clark.
