Inscription
Panel 1: "Not for fame or reward, not for place or for rank; not lured by ambition or goaded by necessity; but in simple obedience to duty as they understood it; these men suffered all, sacrificed all, dared all, and died."

Panel 2: To our dead heroes, by the United Daughters of the Confederacy. Victrix causa diis placuit sed victa catoni.

Inscriptions around frieze and base:
1861-1865.

"They shall beat their swords into ploughshares and their spears into pruning hooks."

[Seals of the 13 Confederate States, plus Maryland.]
M. Ezekiel, Sculptor; Rome, MCMXII.
