REVEILLE, n. A signal to sleeping soldiers to dream of battlefields no more, but get up and have their blue noses counted. In the American army it is ingeniously called 'rev-e-lee,' and to that pronunciation our countrymen have pledged their lives, their misfortunes and their sacred dishonor. -Ambrose Bierce
