1863

To the eternal glory of the North Carolina soldiers, who on this battlefield displayed heroism unsurpassed. Sacrificing all in support of their cause. Their valorous deeds will be enshrined in their hearts of men long after these transient memorials have crumbled into dust.

Thirty two North Carolina regiments were in action at Gettysburg July 1,2,3, 1863. One Confederate soldier in every four who fell here was a North Carolinian.
