First Line: The men who here in harness died

Subject(s): American Civil War; Soldiers; United States - History


The men who here in harness died
Fell not in vain, though in defeat.
They by their end well fortified
The Cause, and built retreat
(With memory of their valor tried)
For emulous hearts in many an after fray --
Hearts sore beset, which died at bay.
