In Memory
of the sons of Charleston
who
fell around her walls;
who
sleep on many battlefields
in
Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania,
Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia,
Louisiana, Mississippi, and
North Carolina
and who
lie in distant graves around
their Northern prisons.

These died for their State

(South face)
This Bronze
preserves the memory
of the
Heroic Dead
from
every part of Carolina,
and from
her sister states of the South,
who fell
in the defence (sic) of this city.
In proud and grateful remembrance
of their devotion, constancy and valour;
who against overwhelming odds
by sea and by land
kept Charleston virgin and invincible
to the last Founder's mark appears.
