Palatka in Putnam County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
Putnam County Confederate Memorial
Although the flag they died to save
floats not over any land or sea
throughout eternal years shall wave
the banner of their chivalry.
for which they fought
will live eternally
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.
