Inscription.  At 2:00 o'clock p.m. the belch and roar of this Jones six-pounder ceased and out of the grove on Seminary Ridge, Gettysburg, marched the bravest body of infantry that ever careered the fields of battle, to hurl itself against the Union batteries on Cemetery Ridge, only to be annihilated in a blaze of glory that will glow undimmed throughout the rolling flood of endless ages.
