“Ye elms that wave on Malvern Hill
In prime of morn and May,
Recall ye how McClellans men
Here stood at bay?”

“These were not men, they were battlefields. And over them, like the sky, arched their sense of harmony, their sense of beauty and rest against which their misery and their struggles were an offence, to which their misery and their struggles were the only approaches they could make, of which their misery and their struggles were an integral part.”
—Rebecca West (18921983)
