Inscription
(Front Side): Floridians of Perry's Brigade, comprised of the 2nd, 5th and 8th Florida Infantry, fought here with great honor as members of Anderson's Division of Hill's Corps and participated in the heaviest fighting of July 2 and 3, 1863. The Brigade suffered 445 casualties of the 700 men present for duty.

Like all Floridians who participated in the Civil War, they fought for the ideals in which they believed, by their noble example of bravery and endurance, they enable us to meet with confidence any sacrifice which confronts us as Americans.
