"Toast of the Army
Favorite Son,
Hail to the Brave
Big Red One!

Always the first
to thirst for a fight
No one will challenge our right victory
we take the field such a brave sight to see!

Men of a great division
courage our tradition
Forward
The Big Red One!"

Very nice shot.

B&W does a good job of emphasizing the important here.

There are an awful lot of names on that monument. Black & White sets the feeling for such a terrible loss.
