He drowned in the

The average life expectancy
in the U.S. was 47 years.

Only 8 percent of the homes
had a telephone.

There were only 8,000 cars

miles of paved roads.

The average wage in the
U.S. was 22 cents per hour.

Ninety percent of all U.S.
doctors had no college

Five leading causes of death
in the U.S. were:
1. Pneumonia and influenza
2. Tuberculosis
3. Diarrhea
4. Heart disease
5. Stroke

Crossword puzzles, canned
beer, and ice tea hadn't been

I am thinking most of you,
While upon the field we're
watching, with the enemy in
Comrades brave are 'round
me lying, filled with thoughts
of home and God;
For well they know that on the
morrow, some will sleep
beneath the sod.

Oh, I long to see you, Mother,
and the loving ones at home,
But I'll never leave our banner
till in honor I can come.
Tell the traitors all around you
that their cruel words we
In every battle kill our soldiers
by the help they give the foe.

Hark! I hear the bugles
sounding, 'tis the signal for
the fight,
Now, may God protect us,
Mother, as He ever does the
Hear "The Battle Cry of
Freedom," how it swells upon
the air,
Oh, yes, we'll rally 'round the
standard, or we'll nobly perish
Farewell, Mother, you may
never press me to your
breast again;
But, oh, you'll not forget me,
Mother, if I'm numbered with
the slain.
~George F. Root
Gone is the sun,
from the sky.
All is well.
Safely rest.
God is nigh.

Fading light
dims the sight
and a star gens the
gleaming bright
from afar drawing
falls the night.

Thanks and praise
for our days
neath the sun
neath the stars
neath the sky
as we go this we know
God is Nigh

As that summer day went on
and the shadows grew long.
He did not fear the coming
of night.
He closed his tired eyes,
and on his very first try,
went soaring on an oft
imagined flight".
