Rustic Seat, Old Cannon and Graves, Dayton Solders’ Home.

The back of the stereo card reads:

Rustic Seat, Old Cannon and Graves, Dayton Soldiers’ Home.

There is not a single other nation in this world that takes as good care of its disabled veterans as does Uncle Sam. In every one of the older states of the Union there is a large and well equipped soldiers’ home, and two miles west of Dayton, Ohio, is the Central National Military Home for disabled veterans of the Civil War, having 640 acres of beautiful grounds, with large buildings and accommodations for six thousand inmates.

It is a sad sight, these endless rows of white headstones, marking the graves of those who have heard the last “taps,” but the survivors lead quite a cheerful life at the Home, rehearsing again and again the heroic fights in which they were happy enough to participate, and proudly dwelling on the achievements of their favorite leaders. Visitors are always welcome, especially if willing to listen to reminiscences of the war.
