Fading light dims the sight,
And a star gems the sky,
From afar drawing nigh,
Falls the night.
Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, From the hills,
From the sky.
All is well, safely rest,
God is nigh.
Then good night, Peaceful night,
Till the light of the dawn
God is near, do not fear,
Friend, good night.

The Medal of Honor During the Civil War For heroism on July 03,
1863 at Gettysburg, PA
Frederick Fuger was one of 63 men who was awarded the Medal of
Honor for heroism in the battle at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, July
1 - 3, 1863. Sergeant Fuger's battery was in the center of the
Union line next to Copse of Trees and firing double and triple
canister into the advancing line of Brigadier General Armistead's
Confederate forces. The rebel commander personally led his men
over the stone wall and into the Union battery, where all of the
Federal officers were quickly either killed or wounded. Sergeant
Fuger immediately took command and ordered his cannoneers to right
as Infantrymen while he continued to work the single remaining
cannon. Under his leadership the battery held its position until
Pickett's Charge was turned back.
