THE WALLABOUT MARTYRS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Greater than memory of achilles or ulysses
Last Line: The stepping stones to thee to-day and here, america.
Subject(s): American Revolution; New York City - Revolutionary Period

Greater than memory of Achilles or Ulysses,
More, more by far to thee than tomb of Alexander,
Those cart loads of old charnel ashes, scales and splints
of mouldy bones,
Once living men -- once resolute courage, aspiration, strength,
The stepping stones to thee to-day and here, America.
