  • New England's dead. New England's dead!
    On every hill they lie;
    On every field of strife, made red
    By bloody victory.
    • New England's Dead, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
  • The land is holy where they fought
    And holy where they fell;
    For by their blood that land was bought,
    The land they loved so well.
    • New England's Dead, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
