Tulsa in Tulsa County, Oklahoma — The American South (West South Central)
Tulsa Oklahoma World War Memorial
the illustrious men of Tulsa County who
gave their lives for their country in the
World War 1917-1918
Here is no rank or situation -- no high or low estate,
the famous and the lowly are not famous or lowly here.
Every grave is hallowed alike, not for fame, wealth or
wisdom, but for what they and all patriots have done, from
Valley Forge to Heartbreak Ridge, under the American flag,
for freedom and the myriad of wonders that are America.
Edward Denton Brewer
Deep, tender, firm and true, our nation's heart
throbs for her gallant heroes passed away
who, in grim battle's drama, played their part
and slumber here today.
James Whitcomb Riley
This graceful spire pointing heavenward, with its four
stone sentries standing guard over the graves of our
honored dead, is the symbol of our gratitude to all our
heroes of all American wars.
It keeps fresh in our memories the glorious spirit of
all those boys and girls who left their homes and peaceful
pursuits to fight and die for our country.
Carson-Wilson Post No.1 of the American Legion
