To the honored memory of The Soldiers, The Sailors, The Statesmen of the Confederate states of America. "Time cannot teach forgetfulness when grief's full heart is fed by fame."
"Tis wreathed around with glory and 'twill live in song and story, though it's folds are in the dust."
"The cause for which he suffered was lost; the people for whom he fought were crushed; the hopes in which he trusted were shattered; but his fame, consigned to the keeping of time, which happily is not so much the tomb of virtue as its shrine, shall in the years to come, fire modest worth to noble ends."
This monument shall stand through the years to come as our loving tribute to the Confederate Soldiers and as a memorial of his heroic courage, his unparalleled devotion and his unselfish patriotism.
