Canton in Madison County, Mississippi — The American South (East South Central)
Harvey's Scouts Monument
Born June 1837,
Killed April 9, 1865.
Just as the country's flag was furled forever, death saved him the pain of defeat.
Long since has beat the last tattoo
Disbanded are the 'Gray' and 'Blue'
And peace reigns now where troopers drew
Their sabres bright to date and do
Led forward by Ad. Harvey
Killed in Battle
Lieut. Thomas Land
Erected by the survivors of Harvey's Scouts to perpetuate the memory of their Captain and Comrades in Arms.
Erected 1894 by Survivors of Harvey's Scouts.
