Hi.my nane is Des. I am Irish. Today i was listening to my car radio. There was an interview with an Irish historian about Kilmahiam jail in Dublin (capital of Ireland). This jail was the site of a great number of executions of Irish patriots by British forces including the leaders of the 1916 easter rebellion. The historian was trying to describe the athmosphere inside the prison, she quoted several lines from "In great deeds something abides". I was so taken with these lines i wanted to know more. I checked the internet and read about Colonel Chamberlain at Gettysburg. I feel these lines could be used to describe any battlefield or any circumstance where great deeds were done and could describe the victors or the vanquished. Thank you for the use of your website to express my comment.
