Antietam • Chickamauga • Gettysburg • Vicksburg
( Front Panel )
Yield not to grief the tribute of a tear,
But ‘neath the fore-front of a
Smile all exultant, as they smiled at fear,
who dare to do, where doing meant to die
So best may comrades prove
So best be hallowed earth where
Soldiers and Sailors
1861 — 1865
( Panel - - Left Side )
Cover the thousands who sleep far away –
Sleep where their friends can not find them today;
They who in mountain and hillside and dell,
Rest where they wearied and lie where they fell.
( Panel - - Right Side )
Soldier rest! Thy warfare o’er,
Sleep the sleep, that knows no breaking
Dream of battled fields no more,
Days of danger, nights of waking.
( Door - - Obverse Side )
For Country and flag.
Our Army and Navy.
