1. Reunited Soldiery Monument
 

Inscription:
Angel Aloft
Spirit of eternal light
Keep silent vigil o'er the brave
The untarnished blue.
The unsullied gray.
In peace and love unite.

Proud heroes have fallen
And over their grave
Our hearts are united
Our country to save.

Over the dead the living bend.
And up to their God their voices send.
That in Liberty's crown or Eternity's day
He may palace as far Jewels
The Blue and the Gray.

A Reunited Soldiery
The Blue
The Gray

Blue
Maj. Gen. S.R. Curtis.
Commander of the
Army of the Southwest.


(Upper Left Side):
Gray
