Freddie Stowers



Fading light dims the sight,
And a star gems the sky,
    Gleaming bright.
From afar drawing nigh,    
    Falls the night.

Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, From the hills,
    From the sky.
All is well, safel
y rest,
    God is nigh.

Then good night, Peaceful night,
Till the light of the dawn
    Shineth bright,
God is near, do not fear,
  Friend, good night.

Died:  September 28, 1918 at the age of 22

Corporal Stowers company was the lead company during the attack on Hill 188, Champagne Marne Sector, France. A few minutes after the attack began, the enemy ceased firing and began climbing up onto the parapets of the trenches, holding up their arms as if wishing to surrender. The Americans ceased fire and came out into the open when, within about 100 meters of the trench line, the enemy jumped back into their trenches and met them with interlocking bands of machine gun fire and mortar fire causing over fifty percent casualties. Corporal Stowers took charge and, with extraordinary heroism and complete disregard of personal danger, crawled forward leading his squad toward an enemy machine gun nest. After fierce fighting, the machine gun position was destroyed and the enemy were killed. Corporal Stowers continued to press the attack. While crawling forward and urging his men towards a second trench line, he was hit by machine gun fire. Although, mortally wounded, he pressed forward, urging on the members of his squad, until he died. Inspired by the heroism and display of bravery of Corporal Stowers, his company continued the attack against incredible odds, capturing Hill 188 and causing heavy enemy casualties.
