Long Description:

Text of plaque:

The muffled drum's sad roll has beat
     The soldier's last tattoo;
No more on life's parade shall meet
    That brave and fallen few.
On Fame's eternal camping-ground
    Their silent tents are spread,
And Glory guards, with solemn round,
    The bivouac of the dead

Springfield National Cemetery 1702 East Seminole Street Springfield, Missouri
