One Hundred And Forty-fire Soldiers In Local Cemeteries -
For the first time, so far as is known, a list of the war veterans buried in the cemeteries of this vicinity has been prepared and made public.
Realizing its importance, J.J. Driscoll Post of the American Legion have for several rears been trying to obtain data or the war veteran dead In the local cemeteries, including the location of the various graves. In anticipation of the customary decorating of the graves on Memorial Day a committee of the Legion has lately speeded up the work. It is expected that at some time each one of these graves will be marked with a headstone bearing the name of the soldier who lies burled beneath the sod. It is said that a law requires this to be done at the joint expense of the county Board of Supervisors and the Federal government.

While an effort was made by the Legion to compile a list of soldiers dead in the local cemeteries which should be as complete and as nearly correct as possible, errors may have occurred in names and it is also possible that there may have been some omissions.
The Legion will be grateful if "The Press" is notified of any error, or if the name of any veteran has been omitted, so that their records may be corrected.
An Ode to the Dead Heroes, contributed by Ron Hanley
THE BIVOUAC OF THE DEAD
by Theodore O'Hara (1820-1867)
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.
No rumor of the foe's advance
Now swells upon the wind;
No troubled thought at midnight haunts
Of loved ones left behind;
No vision of the morrow's strife
The warrior's dream alarms;
No braying horn nor screaming fife
At dawn shall call to arms.
Their shivered swords are red with rust;
Their plumed heads are bowed
Their haughty banner, trailed with dust,
Is now their martial shroud.
And plenteous funeral tears have washed
The red stains from each brow,
And the proud forms, by battle gashed,
Are free from anguish now.
The neighing troop, the flashing blade,
The bugle's stirring blast,
The charge, the dreadful cannonade,
The din and shout are past;
Nor war's wild note, nor glory's peal,
Shall thrill with fierce delight
Those breasts that nevermore may feel
The rapture of the fight....
