Created in 1889 as meeting place for Missouri's Confederate soldiers, it became a place for the less fortunate to live out their remaining years.

Bivouac of the Dead*
by: Theodore O'Hara

Twas in that hour his stern command called to a martyr's grave
The flower of his beloved land, the nation's flag to save.
By rivers of their father's gore his first-born laurels grew,
And well he deemed the sons would pour their lives for glory too.

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