Bivouac of the Dead*
by: Theodore O'Hara

The neighing troop, the flashing blade, the bugle's stirring blast,
The charge, the dreadful cannonade, the din and shout are past;
Nor war's wild note, nor glory's peal, shall thrill with fierce delight
Those breasts that nevermore may feel the rapture of the fight.

"Bivouac of the Dead", is displayed at national cemeteries.  Verses shall appear on many of these pages.
