Decoration Day

Crist aras!

May the memory of those who have died in battle be eternal, and may they rest in peace though they died in war.

The National Park Service has a short article on “Death and Dying” on its page for Civil War Era National Cemeteries. It features many sobering facts, like “Confederate men died at a rate three times that of their Yankee counterparts; one in five white southern men of military age did not survive the Civil War.” What a tragic and often sordid mess history is.
