"There is no holier spot of ground
than where defeated valor lies"
"______________ here was the place of battle. You who have never known the scour and pierce of battle may only remember moments by names, places by monuments, but I who was born by the battle-fields cannot escape a sorrow that dwells, a valor that lingers, a hope that spoke on lips now still."
Honor their valor, emulate the devotion with which they gave themselves to the service of their country, let it never be said that their sons in these southern states have forgotten their noble example.
