When in English, do as the English doth…

I cannot believe how many times I make this error no matter how much editing I may perform. Singular instead of plural. Shame on me.

Why singular and not plural:

I feel as though I am writing to “The Unknown Soldier,” hence “thy” rather than “you” or “ye.”  This also explains why I would refer to his gravestones rather than just his one gravestone.  The Unknown Soldier has many gravestones.
