1. War Between The States Tribute Marker
Inscription.
War Between The States
1861 — 1865
Let the stranger who may in
future times read this
inscription recognize that
these were men whom power
could not corrupt, whom death
could not terrify, whom
defeat could not dishonor,
and let their virtues plead
for just judgement of the
cause in which they perished.
Let the South Carolinian of
another generation remember
that the state taught them
how to live and how to die,
and that from her broken
fortunes she has preserved
for her children the
priceless treasure of their
memories, teaching all who may
claim the same birthright
that truth, courage, and
patriotism endure forever.
