Bivouac of the Dead*
by: Theodore O'Hara
Sons of the Dark and Bloody Ground ye must not slumber there,
Where strangers steps and tongues resound along the heedless air.
Your own proud land's historic soil shall be your fitter grave,
She claims from war her richest spoil -- the ashes of her brave.
"Bivouac of the Dead", is displayed at national
cemeteries. Verses shall appear on many of these pages.
