Let's talk of graves and worms and epitaphs.

An Epitaph A Day - November 12

Keeps Death's Spectre Away

All Epitaphs This Week Will Be Of Those
Who Served Their Country



In memory of Robt. W. Smith
of Co. B. 1st Md. V. I.
son of Henry and Teresa Smith,
who departed this Life 1st Feb. 1864,
Aged 22 years.

Rest Soldier, rest, thy warefare o'er,
The battle roll thou'llt hear no more.
The duty bravely, nobly done
The conflict past, the victory won.
