Returning Soldiers

by W.E.B. Du Bois, as published in The Crisis, Volume 18, Number 1, May 1919

…by the God of Heaven, we are cowards and jackasses if now that that war is over, we do not marshal every ounce of our brain and brawn to fight a sterner, longer, more unbending battle against the forces of hell in our own land.

We return.

We return from fighting.

We return fighting.
