1. Denmark Danes Marker
Inscription. On 15 May 1861, one hundred and forty six men swore allegiance to the South. This unit became known as Co. K, 6th Tenn. Inf. Reg., C.S.A. "The Denmark Danes".

Only forty of the original company survived the four long years of war. These men returned home to find their community in a state of total destruction.

May they rest in peace
