1830 - 1894

(left side)If there be a people on earth given to sober second thought, amenable to reason and regardful of their plighted honor, I believe that...it is the people of North Carolina.

(right side)The subjection of every passion and prejudice...to the cooler sway of judgment and reason, when the common welfare is concerned, is the first victory to be won.

(back of marker: left side)The country turns toward her young men and calls them to lead the way in preaching and practicing hope. You are required, above all, to teach our people to look up from the crumbling ashes and prostrate columns of the present ruin, to the majestic proportions and surpassing grandeur of that temple which may yet be built by the hand which labors, the mind which conceives and the great soul which faints not.

(back of marker: right side)Well and truly North Carolina performed her duty, as the result on many a stricken field will show. First and last she sent to the armies of the Confederacy, not relatively, but absolutely, more soldiers than any other state in the south; furnished more supplies, equipped her troops better....There was not a sacrifice which she was called upon to make for the good of the southern cause that she did not make, and make cheerfully.
