Memorial Day tribute~~~

"They are dead; but they live in each Patriot's breast,And their names are engraven on honor's bright crest." ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow~

Taps~ "Fading light dims the sight, And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright. From afar drawing nigh--Falls the night. Day is done, gone the sun, From the lake, from the hills, from the sky. All is well, safely rest, God is nigh. Then good night, peaceful night, Till the light of dawn shineth bright, God is near, do not fear--Friend, good night."~~~written by General Daniel Butterfield, with an assist from his bugler, Oliver W. Norton in 1862.
