Battle of Jonesboro

To the honored memory of
the several hundred unknown
Confederate Soldiers reposing
within this enclosure who fell
at the Battle of Jonesboro
August 31-September 1, 1864

These soldiers were of Hardee's Corps, commanded by Maj. Gen. Patrick R. Cleburne, Lieut. Gen. Stephen D. Lee's Corps and a portion of Maj. Gen. Joseph Wheeler's Cavalry Corps. Commanded by Lieut. Gen. William J. Hardee and charged with the defense of Jonesboro—though vastly outnumbered by Federal forces—they gave their lives to parry the final thrust at the heart of the Southern Confederacy.
