Remember what it said above the stage in the auditorium of the former Liberty Memorial High School?

Auditorium at Liberty Memorial High School building

Inside the auditorium on the right and left sides of the stage are two plaque's that commemorate names of the 'Boys and Alumni Who Lost Their Lives In WWI.  Above the stage is an excerpt of a poem by Rudyard Kipling, selected by teacher Miss Kate Riggs. 

 

All that they had they gave, they gave
in sure and single faith.
There can be no knowledge reach the grave
To make them grudge their death
Save only if they understood
That, after all was done
We the redeemed denied their blood
And mocked the gains it won..
