Flowers left for Ulric Dahlgren
Colonel Dahlgren, Your dedication, patriotism and sacrifice stir me. I too am the son of a Navy flag officer, whose sires hailed from New England. I understand your passion and enthusiasm for your father's Navy, but your desire for your own challenges and accomplishments. I too received an Army commission. When I was twenty one I lived just outside the outer defenses of Richmond, in the area where your command clashed with the Richmond Militia. On snowy February evenings I would walk the ground you rode over and remember. Your goal to free the suffering souls on Belle Isle, the 19th century version of Auschwitz, was a noble one. Know that the cause for which you sacraficed your life was achieved. Our nation, the United States of America, lives on to vigorously bear freedom's standard.
