Inscription.
(front)
"1861-Our Confederate heroes-1865"

Although the flag they died to save
floats not over any land or sea
throughout eternal years shall wave
the banner of their chivalry.

The principles
for which they fought
will live eternally

Erected A.D. 1924
by

Chapter
United Daughters
of the
Confederacy
with the assistance of
William Ivers, C.S.A. and
other friends as a memorial
to the heroism, fortitude
and glory of the men who
wore the gray in the Sixties.
With the hope that their
love of country, devotion to
principle, and fidelity to
the cause they believed was
right, may be an inspiration
to people of every age.

Nor shall your glory
be forgot
while fame her
record keeps
