The Springfield cemetery containing the grave of President Lincoln now has a monument to Purple Heart recipients.
"We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; for he to-day that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother."
That quote, from Shakespeare's Henry V. is inscribed on the new granite monument.
It's also etched with a drawing of the medal -- a heart, emblazoned with a profile of George Washington, that hangs from a purple ribbon.
The Purple Heart is the military's oldest award, given to troops killed or wounded in combat.
