"From the period of the outbreak of the war in April, 1861, to the surrender of the Confederate army in April, 1865, the muster rolls of the Grays have contained one hundred and eighty names. . . . A large proportion sleep, unmindful of the rude farmer's ploughshare upon the fields made memorable by their deeds."
