Additional Details:
This ivy-clad pergola, erected on a knoll within and near the south end of the National Cemetery, is popularly and appropriately known as "The rostrum," for, standing between the two centre columns many of America's most gifted and famous sons have addressed the thousands who annually assemble to engage in the ceremonies of Memorial day. From that platform have sounded, in words of wisdom and patriotism, the voices of Presidents Hayes, Cleveland and roosevelt; of members of Cabinet Blaine, Devens; of United States Senators Hawley, Burrows, Dolliver, and Ingalls; of Generals Woodford, Butler, Sickles, and McCandless.
