Association Of Soldiers


"Our illustrious ancestors who laid broad and deep the foundation of our free institutions, and whom our country delighted to honor, have gone to their rest, rejoicing we hope, in the rich patrimony they have left us. And where are the patriots who finished the work which their fathers begun — who not only approved the foundation and admired the structure, but were the instruments by whom the keystone which binds the whole was brought on with rejoicing. They, alas, have mostly gone to their long homes."
