CEDAR CREEK

The safety and perpetuity of the
Republic are buttressed in the hearts
of the people, who, in the hour of danger
become its invincible defenders.

Of all human things nothing is more honorable or more
excellent than to deserve well of one’s country.
A glorious death is his who for his country falls.

COLD HARBOR

Tis a rough land of rock, and stone, and tree,
Where breathes no castled lord nor cabin'd slave,
Where thoughts, and hands, and tongues are free,
And friends will find a welcome - foes a grave.

Hearts of oak our ships,
Hearts of oak our men.

WILDERNESS

Soldier rest! Thy warfare o'er,
Dream of fighting fields no more;
Sleep the sleep that knows not breaking,
Morn of toil, nor night of waking.
