Inscription

[front]
Oliver W. Beam.
A private in Co. E. 104th
Reg. Pa. Vol. who departed
this life May 23rd 1862.
Aged 22 years 2 months
and 18 days


[side]
Sleep, soldier, sleep, within thy grave.
The strife with thee is o'er;
The war horse tread, the clank of arms
shall greet thy ear no more.

Within this tomb, the soldier rests,
Honored, and blest, and brave.
He fell in freedom's sacred cause,
And fills a freeman's grave.
