“On this day, the 30th of May, we call to mind the deaths of those who died that the nation might live, who wagered all that life holds dear
for the great prize of death in battle, who poured out their blood
like water in order that the mighty national structure raised by
the fair-seeing genius of Washington, Franklin, Marshall,
Hamilton and the other great leaders of the Revolution,
great framers of the Constitution, should not
crumble into meaningless ruins.”

– Arlington, VA, May 30, 1902
