    Joseph Warren, M.D.
    Trained in the holy art whose lifted shield
    Wards off the darts a never-slumbering foe,
    By hearth and wayside lurking, waits to throw.
    Oppression taught his helpful arm to wield
    The slayer's weapon: on the murderous field
    The fiery bolt he challenged laid him low,
    Seeking its noblest victim. Even so
    The charter of a nation must be sealed!
    The healer's brow the hero's honours crowned,
    From lowliest duty called to loftiest deed.
    Living, the oak-leaf wreath his temples bound;
    Dying, the conqueror's laurel was his meed,
    Last on the broken ramparts' turf to bleed
    Where Freedom's victory in defeat was found. June 11th, 1876 (Text from American Sonnets

    Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (1841-1935)
    Quote Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. was born in Boston on March 8, 1841. He would live until two days short of his 94th birthday. His father, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. , was a physician, a professor of medicine at Harvard, and an author of novels, verse, and humorous essays. Thus, Holmes grew up in a literary, and prosperous, family. Holmes attended private schools in Boston and then, like his father, Harvard. Young Holmes was not overly impressed with the Harvard of that time, finding the curriculum stultifying (Henry Adams later remarked that "Harvard taught little, and that little ill."). He exercised his literary talents as editor of the Harvard Magazine, and in numerous essays. His graduation was even in some doubt, as he had been publicly admonished by the faculty for "disrespect" towards a professor. Holmes evidently took this as an affront and left to train for the Civil War . His unit was not immediately sent to the front, and Holmes was persuaded to return and receive his degree. After graduating from Harvard, Holmes began his Civil War service. He was wounded in battle three times and also suffered numerous illnesses. Though he was later to glorify wartime service, he declined to renew his term of service when it expired. Holmes apparently, and justifiably, felt that he had done more than his duty, and had survived one battle too many to continue tempting fate.

    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
    Captain and Brevet Colonel, U.S. Army
    Associate Justice, U.S. Supreme Court Born in Massachusetts, he was a Civil War veteran who was wounded three times in battle and who met President Abraham Lincoln on one of the President's visits to the front. He taught law at Harvard, sat on the Massachusetts Supreme Court for twenty years and served for thirty years on the United States Supreme Court, where he helped President Franklin D. Roosevelt select his own successor. An interesting fact is that he had ben appointed to the Court by President Theodore Roosevelt, who was disappointed in many of his decisions. He was known on the Court as "The Great Dissenter" because of the brilliant legal reasoning found in his written opinions. He retired from the Court on January 12, 1932 and was the oldest man to have ever served on the court. He died in Washington, D. C. on March 6, 1935 and was buried in Section 5 of Arlington National Cemetery. His wife, Fannie Bowditch Dixwell Holmes (December 1840-April 1929), whose burial was arranged by Chief Justice William Howard Taft because Holmes was too shy to ask for the honor, is buried with him.

    Supreme Court Justice "The Magnificent Yankee" is the title of a 1950 Hollywood movie about Holmes. The term "Yankee" grates in the ears of this Red Sox fan. Link here to read Bob Dame's article on Oliver Wendell Holmes, "The Man Who Was Touched With Fire" , published in the March 2001 issue of "America's Civil War" magazine The most famous Harvard man of the Twentieth Massachusetts Infantry Regiment , Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., was a towering figure in American jurisprudence, and one of the Twentieth Century's most influential public figures. Holmes the soldier served with distinction, surviving three wounds and rising to the rank of Captain in the Twentieth Massachusetts Infantry . He later served as Brevet Colonel and aide-de-camp on the staff of Sixth Corps General Horatio Wright. Holmes is of course better known as "The Great Dissenter". For thirty years, from 1902 to 1932, Holmes' brilliant intellect held sway over the US Supreme Court, and immeasurably influenced the American legal system. According to no less an authority than The Honorable Richard Posner, present day Chief Federal Judge of the Seventh Circuit, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. was "the most illustrious figure in the history of American law". (Take that, Johnnie Cochran!)

    established here a large depot of supplies designed for the use of the Federal army while on its march toward Vicksburg, but General Earl Van Dorn, with a brigade of cavalry, surprised the post at daylight on the 20th of this month, burned the supplies and took 1500 prisoners. Holly Springs was the home and is the burial-place of Edward Cary Walthall (1831—1898), a Democratic member of the United States Senate in 1885—1894 and in 1895—1898. In 1836, being in that year the Phi Beta Kappa poet at Harvard University, he published his first volume of Poems, which afterwards reached a second edition. Among these earlier lyrics was “ The Last Leaf,” one of the most delicate combinations of pathos and humour in literature. His collected poetry fills three volumes. In 1856—1857 a Boston publishing house (Phillips, Sampson, and Co.) invited James Russell Lowell to edit a new magazine, which he agreed to do on condition that he could secure the assistance of Dr Holmes. By this urgent invitation the Doctor was equally surprised and flattered, for heretofore he had stood rather outside the literary coterie of Cambridge and Boston. He accepted with pleasure, and at once threw himself into the enterprise with zeal. He christened it The Atlantic Mont/fly; and, as Mr Howells afterwards said, he There were characters and incidents, but hardly a story, in the A ulocrat and the Professor.

    The decisive choices thus were made during what amounts to a single, long lifetime. Oliver Wendell Holmes's long adult life almost matched it. In the field of American jurisprudence, many of the final forms are his. He, perhaps more than anyone else, broke American legal thinking of its natural law habits and enshrined positivism as the only respectable philosophy of law. He quite literally wrote the book on legal pragmatism. He provided the theoretical framework that made it possible for the federal government to create the kind of "soft" command economy typical of twentieth century states. He made it possible for labor unions to carry out class war in the courts rather than in the streets. He turned the First Amendment's freedom of the press clause from a dead letter to a premise of American culture. Also, he was never what he seemed. President Theodore Roosevelt, apparently mislead by the militaristic rhetoric of Holmes's extra-judicial statements into believing Holmes to be a congenial jingo, appointed him to be an associate justice on the United States Supreme Court in 1902. Always hardworking and never a difficult colleague, he was a respected but slightly obscure figure until the 1920s, when he became the darling of Progressives, civil libertarians and the labor movement. In his 80s, he became a national figure for the first time. Then and for decades afterward, he was the "Yankee from Olympus," the "great dissenter," even "..the greatest legal intellect in the history of the English-speaking world," in the opinion of his Supreme Court successor, Benjamin Cardozo. With his brilliant epigrammatic prose style and fearsome moustaches, he joined Mark Twain and Benjamin Franklin as an archetypical American.
