[Morgan Side Bottom]
The Unanimous Resolve of
the Congress of the United States
crowns this Memorial Column with the form and face of
General Daniel Morgan,
the hero of Cowpens, who, on that field, was victorious
in the great cause of
American Independence.

[Pickens Side]
1781.
One people.
No North, No South,
No East, No West.
A Common Interest.
One country-one destiny.
1881.
As it was, so ever let it be.

[William Washington Side Top]
One hundred years ago
The men
of the North and the South
fought together,
and by their blood secured
the Independence,
and cemented the Union of the
American States.
The Bond that then bound them
together is the
Bond of their fellow-countrymen
to-day.
The common country
they created is the heritage of all
their sons.
The perpetuation of the Republic
of their Fathers
is the safety and honor
of North and South.
Alike the sentiment and duty of all
the States.
Esto perpetua.

[William Washington Side Bottom]
The Washington Light Infantry
To whose custody
the widow of Col. Wm. Washington,
committed his crimson battle-flag,
Projected this Memorial Column, and participated
in its dedication, again unfurling
"The glorious Standard, which at Eutaw shone so bright,
And as a dazzling meteor swept thro' the
Cowpens deadly fight."
