In memory of the Gadsden Alabama girl heroine Emma Sansom, who when the bridge across Black Creek had been burned by the enemy, mounted behind Gen. Forest and showed him a ford where his command crossed. He pursued and captured that enemy and saved the city of Rome, GA. A grateful people took the girl into their love and admiration, nor will this marble outlast the love and pride that her deed inspired.


Our heroes 1861-1865
The Confederate soldiers.
These were men whom power could not corrupt, whom death could not terrify, and whom defeat could not dishonor. They glorified the cause for which they fought.
