Yorktown Battlefield

In great deeds something abides;
On great fields something stays.
Forms change and pass;
Bodies disappear but spirits linger,
To consecrate ground
For the vision place of the soul.
And reverent men and women from afar,
And generations that know us not
And that we know not of…
Shall come…to ponder and to dream….
And the power of the vision
Shall pass into their souls

Colonel Joshua Chamberlain – October 3, 1886
