Who kept the faith and fought the fight;
The glory theirs, the duty ours.
A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.
The patriot's blood is the seed of Freedom's tree.
We come, not to mourn our dead soldiers, but to praise them.
-Francis A. Walker
For love of country they accepted death...
-James A. Garfield
The brave die never, though they sleep in dust:
Their courage nerves a thousand living men.
-Minot J. Savage
