Grand Army of the Republic  Monument

Chalmette, Louisiana

Undated Linen-era

This is an unused linen-era postcard picturing the GAR monument in the National Cemetery Area of the National Historical Park at Chalmette, Louisiana.

On the reverse, the card notes, "The remains of 1,500 veterans and others eligible for burial in a national cemetery have been interred here since this was set aside as a national cemetery in 1864.  'Dum Tacent Clament' inscribed on this monument is translated to mean 'Though Silent, Still Let Them Be heard .' The cemetery is within Chalmette National Historical Park and administered by the National Park Service at the U.S. Department of the Interior."

The card was published by A. HIRSCHWITZ, New Orleans, Louisiana.
