"You faithful herald's blazon'd stone
With mournful pride shall tell,
When many a vanished age hath flown,
The story how ye fell;
Nor wreck, nor change, nor Winter's blight,
Nor Time's remorseless doom
Shall mar one ray of Glory's light
That gilds your deathless tomb."

NATIONAL CEMETERY, JEFFERSON BARRACKS, MO
This Cemetery is situated on the Jefferson Barracks Reservation, ten miles
south of St. Louis, Mo., and 704 feet west of the Mississippi River, and
contains 20 1/2 acres of land, which is high and rolling, presenting a very
beautiful appearance, and is in every respect admirably adapted to the purposes
of a National Cemetery.
It is laid out in sections, intersected by walks and avenues, and is inclosed
with a substantial picket fence.
The remains of the deceased Union soldiers interred here were principally
from Macon City, Patterson and vicinity, Greenville, Bloomfield, Huntsville,
Jefferson City, Mo., and from the Wesleyan and Christ Church Cemeteries, St.
Louis, most of whom died in hospitals at St. Louis Mo.
Head-boards, properly inscribed are being erected and other improvements made
to render this Cemetery still more attractive.
There are interred in this Cemetery the remains of 10,217 deceased Union
soldiers, of which about 7,000 are known and the balance unknown. This
Roll of Honor, however, contains the names of only 6,134 that have been
identified, and the location of 2,402 unknown that have not been identified,
making a total of 8,536. The others will be published in subsequent
volumes of Roll of Honor.
