"In great deeds something abides. On great fields something stays. Forms change and pass, bodies disappear, but spirits linger, to consecrate ground for the vision-place of souls. And reverent men and women from afar, and generations that know us not and that we know not of, heart-drawn to see where and by whom great things were suffered and done for them, shall come to this deathless field to ponder and dream, and lo! The shadow of a mighty presence shall wrap them in its bosom, and the power of the vision pass into their souls."
Joshua L. Chamberlain, Brevet Major General of Volunteers. Commanding General, 1st Division, V Corps, Army of the Potomac. President of Bowdoin College. Governor of Maine. Medal of Honor recipient as Commander, 20th Maine Volunteer Infantry, 2 July 1863, Gettysburg, PA.

I would like to think that, in any afterlife worth having, the men of the 20th Maine and the men of VT-8 have had a chance to raise a glass to fallen comrades and engage in some good old-fashioned Army-vs-Navy shit talking.
