American Civil War Graves

American Civil War Graves (Photo credit: smilla4)

for my relative now down in the green hills of Chattanooga
who lost his life far from home in the great Civil War
I now take a moment to lower my head in humble remembrance
for his dear country, he gave his all and more

on this memorial day we honor the memory
of many that have given their dearest lives
to protect and to defend our freedoms and our great country
leaving behind bereaved families, children and wives
