(Second Re-dedication Plaque): We commemorate the 100th anniversary of this monument and rededicate it in honor of those who served with pride and distinction in the 14th New Jersey Volunteer Infantry. One hundred years ago, in a time of healing the surviving veterans came here to remember their comrades and their sacrifices. We gather here today to honor them anew.

1. Monument rededication costs...
An interesting note. The cost of replacing the concrete sidewalk at the base, manufacturing the rededication plaque, as well as the cost of the logistics for holding the rededication ceremony was about $5,000. That’s $1,000 more than it cost to erect the monument in 1907.
