Jewett, S. O. (n.d.). Decoration Day. Retrieved from

Excerpt: A WEEK before the 30th of May, three friends John Stover and Henry Merrill and Asa Brown happened to meet on Saturday evening at Barton?s store at the Plains. They were enjoying this idle hour after a busy week. After long easterly rains, the sun had at last come out bright and clear, and all the Barlow farmers had been planting. There was even a good deal of ploughing left to be done, the season was so backward. The three middle?aged men were old friends. They had been school?fellows, and when they were hardly out of their boyhood the war came on, and they enlisted in the same company, on the same day, and happened to march away elbow to elbow. Then came the great experience of a great war, and the years that followed their return from the South had come to each almost alike. They might have been members of the same rustic household, they knew each other?s history so well.
