    ... happen all over the world. It is here, where men marched to die. The battlefields are just down the road. It was indescribable. There was silence, and the crowd murmured as one, "and at the going down of the sun, we will remember them." Due to the holiday, there was an extended ceremony, and wreaths were laid.
