1. North Carolina Monument
 
Inscription. In memory of the North Carolina soldiers who fought and died so courageously and the civilians who suffered so grievously during the Battle of Bentonville. March 19-21, 1865.

[ Back of Monument: ]
Sleep, soldier, sleep, in thy rough earthen tomb.
While above thee the winter winds rave.
In summer the birds will thy requiem sing,
and willows weep over thy grave.

No coffin enclosed his mangled remains,
no shroud, save his uniform old;
but his name is entwined in the laurels of fame,
and on memory’s pages enrolled.
