MILITARY DEATHS FROM THE INDIANAPOLIS DAILY JOURNAL JULY 1862

MILITARY DEATHS IN THE LAFAYETTE DAILY JOURNAL—RAILROAD EDITION

TO INDIANA'S SOLDIER DEAD
"Whatever else Indiana may have lacked, she has not been wanting in a sense of proportion. Always she has been reasonably proud of her sons and daughters, whether they abode at home or wandered to the uttermost part of the earth. She has cherished and protected their good names and fame, whether these happened to be writ large on large affairs or only in the sign manual of the average man.
    Proud of her enterprise, her intelligence, her material success, nevertheless she has been always a Roman Cornelia, her children have been her jewels.
    Like many mothers, she has tried to love them impartially but has failed. Born into the Union when the question of the extension of human slavery first arose, she took her stand on freedom's side. Since that far off year there has been no pulsing moment that her soul has not been aflame with love of liberty. All else she counts as dross, if by its sacrifice happily she may preserve this one essential birthright of mankind. So, though all her children are her jewels, the ones she wears within her diadem are those who dare to go, in the defense of that birthright, to what the thoughtless call death, but what the wise know to be glory.
    Always her sons have gladly offered themselves as sacrifices for faith, for friendship, and for freedom. Their country's call has been to them the voice of God. When they go forth, full armed with the sacred traditions of the state, little think they of their own salvation, if by their blood, truth and justice and freedom are saved.
    Why the just must suffer for the unjust, I do not know, I can not tell, yet this I know: That always the progress of the human race is marked by tombstones and not by milestones. Just now it is being marked as never before and on them are being carved the names of Indiana's bravest, truest, and tenderest sons. Unhappy and unworthy children of this state who stay at home if they fail, with sad and loving hearts, to uncover this day and salute the memory of these, our pride, our glory, and our hope.
    Oh, broken-hearted one, most men would tell you they are dead. I dare say unto you: Nay, they are not dead, nor can they die. Their bodies have been sown in the fields of Flanders and of France, but their souls shall be raised in immortality to walk the wide world round while men love liberty and long for brotherhood. Yes, weep this day for the touch of a vanished hand, but when the tears have fallen, exult that Indiana bears heroes and martyrs, not cowards, not slaves. Farewell to the mortal! Hail to the immortal!" From address of Vice-President Thomas Riley Marshall, Indianapolis, September 22, 1920.
