A song for the heroes gone on ahead
To join the hosts of the marching dead—
A song for the souls that could lightly fling
Sweet life away as a little thing
For the sake of the mighty need of earth,
The need of the ages coming to birth.
Glory that God gathers the heroes home
Out of the red fields, out of the foam,
Gathers them out of the Everywhere
Into the Camp that is Over There.
—Edwin Markham
 
Erected 1924 by County Federation of Women's Clubs and Organizations.
