Can there be a more ferocious marker to the persistent rage twenty years later of North to South than this disembodied arm, still swinging a saber? And yet, there is a bit of New England humor, for the inscription ends with a title from Shakespeare—not “Measure for Measure,” but rather “All's Well That Ends Well.”
