Green sods are all their monuments; and yet it tells A nobler history than pillared piles, Or the eternal pyramids.

The legacy of heroes is the memory of a great name and the inheritance of a great example.

They are dead; but they live in each Patriot’s breast, And their names are engraven on honor’s bright crest.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
These heroes are dead. They died for liberty – they died for us. They are at rest. They sleep in the land they made free, under the flag they rendered stainless, under the solemn pines, the sad hemlocks, the tearful willows, and the embracing vines. They sleep beneath the shadows of the clouds, careless alike of sunshine or of storm, each in the windowless Place of Rest. Earth may run red with other wars – they are at peace. In the midst of battle, in the roar of conflict, they found the serenity of death. I have one sentiment for soldiers living and dead: cheers for the living; tears for the dead.
- Robert G. Ingersoll
