An Appropriate Remembrance of Duty, Honor, and Love

This evening I happened to be watching the first installment of Ken Burns' much-acclaimed Civil War series and heard again the Civil War letter sent by Sullivan Ballou of the Second Regiment, Rhode Island Volunteers, to his wife Sarah. You can read it here.

It strikes me that although we are hearing now of similar devotion by our soldiers in the war on terror, it's well to remember that this sort of thing has been going on in our republic for a long time now.
