1. The Bivouac of the Dead Marker
Inscription.  

The muffled drum's sad roll has beat
the soldier's last tattoo;
No more on life's parade shall meet
that 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
