Quote #4

Honour the Light Brigade,
   Noble six hundred!     (lines 54-5)

Tennyson is pretty much giving us an order here.  The Light Brigade did their duty, now it's our duty to honor them.  Tennyson isn't asking us if we'd like to think about honoring the Brigade.  He's telling us that we need to respect their glory.
