"Not for fame or reward -
Not for place or for rank -
Not lured by ambition -
Or goaded by necessity -
But in simple -
Obedience to duty -
As they understood it
These men suffered all -
Sacrificed All -
Dared all -
A quotation from Dr. Randolph Harrison McKim, who went from the ranks of the Confederate Army into the Ministry, and was the rector of Epiphany Church in Washington, D.C.
