Inscription.  
Erected by the Ladies’ Memorial Association. 1871.

True to the Soil
That gave them Birth and reared them Men:
True to their Ancestors of High Renown
And Hallowed Worth:
Cherishing the Sentiments of Home and Country
And the Allegiance there unto Due
As One and Inseparable:
These Heroes, Ours in the Unity of Blood,
Ours in the Unity of Patriotism,
Struggled for the Rights of States
As Held by the Fathers of the Republic
And by the Fathers, as a sacred trust,
Unto them Bequeathed.
The measure of their years suddenly completed
In the fatal Issues of Battle.
Reached the consummation of Earthly Glory
By their Death.
Last and Holiest Office of Human Fidelity
Possible to Brave Men
Attesting their sincerity, Proving their Honor.
And sealing their integrity
They won their title to an Immortality
Of Love and Reverence.


Bright angels, come and guard our sleeping heroes.
