Inscription. This Monument was erected by the women of South Carolina in 1896 to John Caldwell Calhoun in commemoration of his eminent Statesmanship during the many years of his public life - it replaces one formerly on the same spot which proved unsatisfactory. The funds for its construction were raised soon after his death in 1850 by the Ladies Calhoun Monument Association. Its treasurer Mrs. M. A. Snowden having charge of all its assets secured them about her person and thus saved them during the memorable night of the destruction on the 17th February 1865
 
Erected 1896 by the Women of South Carolina.
