Battle Ash

Famous quotes containing the words battle and/or ash:

    I remember the scenes of battle in which we stood together. I remember especially that broad and deep grave at the foot of the Resaca hill where we left those gallant comrades who fell in that desperate charge. I remember, through it all, the gallantry, devotion and steadfastness, the high-set patriotism you always exhibited.
    Benjamin Harrison (1833–1901)

    The last cobwebs
    of fog in the
    black firtrees are flakes
    of white ash in the world’s hearth.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)
