The plaque on the obelisk marking Gov. George Michael Troup's grave:
George Michael Troup
Born Sept 8th, 1870
Died April 26th, 1856
No epitaph can tell his worth
The history of Georgia must perpetuate
his virtues and commemorate
his Patriotism
There he teaches us -
the argument being exhausted
to Stand by our Arms.
