Famous quotes containing the words monument, soldiers and/or colored:

    I see his monument is still there.
    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)

    How red the rose that is the soldier’s wound,
    The wounds of many soldiers, the wounds of all
    The soldiers that have fallen, red in blood,
    The soldier of time grown deathless in great size.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    I am a colored woman or a Negro woman. Either one is OK. People dislike those words now. Today these use this term African American. It wouldn’t occur to me to use that. I prefer to think of myself as an American, that’s all!
    Annie Elizabeth Delany (b. 1891)
