Our nation was born in strife, and the costs of preserving our liberties have been paid by brave men and women from “That rude bridge” at Lexington, to all parts of this good Earth. While we enjoy ourselves and revel in the celebrations of our nation’s birthday, let us not forget those who gave their tomorrow’s for our todays.
This song, “The Vacant Chair“, was written during the civil war, and was popular with soldiers and families on both sides of that terrible conflict. It’s words are as poignant and relevant today as then. God Bless all our fallen, and all who have stood up to stand in the ranks on behalf of our Families, Liberties, and Constitution.
Most of all, God Bless America.
