Stereo Card, 1900

Ned, wouldn't this be neat if proved to be 1st Nebraska Regiment boys?


Arthur H. Vickers, Sergeant in the First Nebraska Regiment:
“I am not afraid, and am always ready to do my duty, but I would like some one to tell me what we are fighting for.”

J. E. Fetterly, a Nebraska soldier:
“Some think the insurgents are disheartened, but I think they will make a desperate struggle for what they consider their rights. I do not approve of the course our government is pursuing with these people. If all men are created equal, they have some rights which ought to be respected.”

Tom Crandall, of the Nebraska Regiment:
“The boys are getting sick of fighting these heathens, and all say we volunteered to fight Spain, not heathens. Their patriotism is wearing off. We all want to come home very bad. If I ever get out of this army I will never get into another. They will be fighting four hundred years, and then never whip these people, for there are not enough of us to follow them up........The people of the United States ought to raise a howl and have us sent home.”
"I was born by the river in a little tent, and just like the river I've been running ever since." - Sam Cooke
"He who will not look backward with reverence, will not look forward with hope." - Edmund Burke
". . .freedom is not everything or the only thing, perhaps we will put that discovery behind us and comprehend, before it's too late, that without freedom all else is nothing."- G. Warren Nutter
