CUSTER NATIONAL CEMETERY

"BIVOUAC OF THE DEAD"

"The muffled drums sad roll has beat the soldiers last tattoo no more on life's parade shall meet that brave and fallen few.

On eternal camping-ground, their silent tents are spread, and glory guards with solemn round the bivouac of the dead."

Theodore O'Hara, August 1847
