The Sentry at Ward Square
The soldier clad in lead pants
Portrays the brave who mustered here
And for the Union and Freedom stand
Heed Lincolnís call to volunteer
From here they joined the fighting ranks
To defend with valor the Nationís cause
Who taught and died and bled for us
The proud who served Little Falls.
Edwin Vogt
