Famous quotes containing the words regiment and/or east:

They all smiled as I rode by. But as I passed away I couldn’t help dropping a few natural tears. I felt as I did when I saw them mustered in at Camp Chase.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    From the east to western Inde,
    No jewel is like Rosalind.
