West side

Their gallant and heroic deeds
like monumental shafts arise
from out the graveyard
of the past,
and mark the tombs
where valor lies.
_______

South side


No sordid or mercenary
spirit animated the
cause espoused by those
to whom this monument
is erected or inspired the
men who bravely fought,
and the women who freely
suffered for it. Its final
failure could not
dishonor it, nor did defeat
estrange its devotees.
_______


East side

While this monument
is erected in memory
of Confederates soldiers
and the sacred cause
for which they contended.
It also intended to
commemorate the noble
women whose peerless
patriotism and sublime
lives of heroic and
self-sacrificing ser-
vice enhanced the
holiness of that cause
and prolonged the
struggle for its su-
premacy by inspiring
its champions with
increased ardor enthu-
siasm and gallantry
in their contest.
