[East Side]:
This monument is dedicated to the memory of the Confederate Soldiers by the women of Oconee County. These gallant soldiers gave their lives for the principle of states rights, for the protection of their homes, and in defence of their women and children. We, who knew them, testify that their courage was without a precedent, their fortitude without a parallel, their virtues of the highest, and that they knew no law of life but loyalty, truth and civic virtue, and to these principles their consecrated their lives and fortunes.

[North Side]:
On fame's eternal camping ground
Their silent tents are spread
While glory guards the solemn round of
The bivouac of the dead.

[West Side]:
Confederate Service
Six hundred thousand men
Federal Service
Two million, six hundred thousand men

[South Side]:
The land they struggled to save for us
Will not forget
Its warriors yet
Who sleep in so many a grave for us.
