1. Our Confederate Soldiers Marker
Inscription.  

(Front):
Erected to Confederate Soldiers
by Franklin Chapter No. 14,
Daughters of the Confederacy,
Nov. 30, A.D. 1899.

(Right panel):
We, who saw and knew them well,
are witnesses to coming ages
of their valor and fidelity.
Tried and true. Glory crowned.
1861 – 1865.

(Reverse):
In honor and memory of our heroes
both private and chief
of the Southern Confederacy.
No country ever had truer sons,
no cause nobler champions,
no people bolder defenders,
than the brave soldiers
to whose memory
this stone is erected.

(Left panel):
Would not it be a blame for us
if their memory part from our land and hearts
and a wrong to them and a shame to us,
the glories they won shall not wane from us.
In legend and lay, our heroes in gray
shall ever live over again for us.

 
Erected 1899 by Franklin Chapter No. 14, Daughters of The Confederacy.
