Erected
to the memory of the
Confederate Dead
April 26, 1871
by the
Lee Memorial Association
of Jefferson County
———————
There's grandeur in graves, there's glory in gloom
For out of the gloom, future brightness is born.
As, after the night Looms the sunrise of morn.
And the graves of the dead with the grass overgrown,
May yet form the footstool of Liberty's throne.
And in each simple wreck in the way-path of might
Shall yet be a rock in the temple of right.
[from Abram Joseph Ryan's A Land Without Ruins]
———————
It is sweet and honorable
to die for one's country
———————
In life united in the the discharge
of patriotic duty, in death
they ought not to be separated
