West and South Faces
Inscription.
(Front (West) Panel)
Erected A.D. 1909, by the Ex-Soldiers and Sailors Association Elkhart Indiana

To the memory of our departed heroes of the Union Army. Their services to a grateful country were gallant and self sacrificing. May they enjoy a heavenly reward.

(Right Side (South) Panel)
This country owes its greatness and prosperity to the soldiers of the Union Army. Had it not been for their valorous deeds the American people would not have been afforded opportunity to enjoy the peaceful progress which has so richly blessed this nation.

(Rear (East) Panel)
May God bless the Union women of the Civil War. Without their sympathy, support and encouragement, the struggle for right would never have been won.

(Left Side (North) Panel)
The conflict between the armies and navies of the North and the South was vigorous and fiercely contested. But now that the mantle of peace has descended over this fair land there is no bitterness between the contestants. Let this happy condition be an object lesson to future generations.
 
Erected 1909 by Ex-Soldiers and Sailors Association.
