Inscription
(Front):
This shaft is dedicated
as an altar of remembrance
to the Confederate soldiers
who fought at Fort Donelson
February, 1862
by the
Daughters of the Confederacy
of Tennessee
"There is no holier spot of ground
than where defeated valor lies"

(Left):
"______________ here was the place of battle. You who have never known the scour and pierce of battle may only remember moments by names, places by monuments, but I who was born by the battle-fields cannot escape a sorrow that dwells, a valor that lingers, a hope that spoke on lips now still."

(Right):
Honor their valor, emulate the devotion with which they gave themselves to the service of their country, let it never be said that their sons in these southern states have forgotten their noble example.

(back):
February 13th, 1862
February 14th, 1862
February 15th, 1862
Somewhere here our unknown dead will lie forever, with arms unstacked forever, with colors that cannot be furled.
