    Soldiers,
    you are remembered, the icy copper plaque that stays in the diamond where the boys left The100th PA Infantry regiment-The Roundheads (named after a Scottish Army from the 1700's(?)
    A statue of a Federal soldier guards the town from sunrise facing west.
    And it witnesses the continuance of our town -The Hudson lunch(great), the Fountain restaurant(good), the Diamond Bar (oh, well)
    Along with the names, chiseled in stone, of the unlucky soldiers (though wasn't it Whitman or somebody that noticed the dead in perfect calm composed and peaceful
    ..... the ones who survived being who really seemed to suffer anyway.
    Past here were the railroads and another much nobler one-the Underground Railroad went through houses and caverns and basements and false walls and the like through here where remains of evidence are sometimes still found- a manuscript here and other vague hints hidden even turning up now.
    Those things are priceless, of course.
    Many people living in those same old houses after have stories to tell about ghostly visitors who seem to share the spaces with them.
    But I guess we can't get all caught up in that now.
    Our town looks great, We rebuilt it the way it was in its glorious past from the early 20th century to right about the crash of '29.
    We are a great looking ghost town. Rebuilt in splendor with no way to pay for it except for hiking rents to anyone who even tries running their businesses there now.
    But it was great then.
    (Maybe we all reincarnated here with the intention of restoration)....
    But time moves on, as will we again.
