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 Philippine Insurrection For
heroism on November 26, 1899 at Passi, Island of Panay,
spring of 1898 until early the following year, most battles in
the Philippine Islands were sporadic ambushes of small American
patrols in the jungles, as the U.S. Army sought to root out the
rebel forces of Emilio Aguinaldo. On November 26, 1899, First
Lieutenant George Stewart lead his men in an attack on a rebel
force entrenched on the opposite bank of a river. The crossing
was made under heavy enemy fire, during which the element was
completely exposed. One of the enlisted men fell while crossing
and was in danger of being dragged under the water by his heavy
equipment. Despite the continuing enemy fire, Lieutenant Stewart
plunged into the river to save the struggling man from drowning,
and helped him to the shore.
