Inscription.

Dr. Noel d'Alvigny was born in 1800, Paris. As a surgeon in both the French and Confederate Armies (Leyden Artillery), he said, "I was in two revolutions." He was the only doctor who bravely remained during the burning of Atlanta in 1864 and was responsible for saving the Atlanta Medical Center (now Emory). Atlanta historians state that Noel was the model for the character of "Dr. Meade" in Margaret Mitchell's "Gone with the Wind."
