Inscription.  
"It is for us the living, rather, to
be dedicated here...

to the great task remaining
before us...

that from these honored dead we
take increased devotion to that
cause for which they gave the last
full measure of devotion, that we
here highly resolve that these dead
shall not have died in vain."

Abraham Lincoln
 
Erected 2013 by the Colorado Freedom Memorial Foundation.
