    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteGRAVE, n. A place in which the dead are laid to await the coming of the medical student.



Beside a lonely grave I stood -- With brambles 'twas encumbered; The winds were moaning in the wood, Unheard by him who slumbered,



A rustic standing near, I said:

"He cannot hear it blowing!"

"'Course not," said he: "the feller's dead -- He can't hear nowt [sic] that's going."



"Too true," I said; "alas, too true -- No sound his sense can quicken!"

"Well, mister, wot is that to you? -- The deadster ain't a-kickin'."



I knelt and prayed: "O Father, smile On him, and mercy show him!" That countryman looked on the while, And said: "Ye didn't know him." --Pobeter Dunko

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote"After four years of arduous service marked by unsurpassed courage and fortitude, the Army of Norther Virginia has been compelled to yield to overwhelming numbers and resources.



I need not tell the brave survivors of some many hard fought battles who have remained steadfast to the last that I have consented to this result from no distrust of them.



But feeling that valor and devotion could accomplish nothing that could compensate for the loss that must have attended the continuance of the contest, I determined to avoid the useless sacrifice of those whose past services have endeared them to their countrymen.



By the terms of the agreement, officers and men can return to their homes and remain until exchanged. You will take with you the satisfaction that proceeds from a consciousness of duty faithfully performed; and I earnestly pray that a Merciful God will extend to you His blessings and protection.



With an unceasing admiration of your constancy and devotion to your Country, and a grateful remembrance of your kind and generous consideration for myself, I bid you all an affectionate farewell."

Genl.
