Requiem

Standard

I found this the other day at Shorpy.com. I thought it fitting, what with this being Memorial Day weekend.

As I watched this, I realized that Emmett’s father fought at Petersburg. He may have known some of the soldiers in this presentation.

Regardless of what side these men fought for, these men died fighting for what they believed in; something worth remembering this weekend.
