Pvt. Henry Smyser

See the poignant story of brothers Henry and Jacob Smyser here.

The verse on Jacob Smyser's gravestone reads:

You died among strangers,
Far from your home.
No mother was there,
To watch o'er her son.
With strangers you suffered,
Among strangers you died.
Except a kind brother,
Who stood by your side.

Pvt. Henry Smyser
