Inscription.  Front:
The Greatest Fighting Force Ever Assembled
The Confederate Soldiers
1861-1865

“Not for fame or reward, not for place or rank, not lured by ambition or goaded by necessity, but simple obedience to duty as they understood it, these men suffered all, dared all, -- and died.”
Rev. Dr. Randolph McKim (Confederate Soldiers Monument, Arlington National Cemetery)

Back:
“We Continue to Honor”
The citizen-soldiers who fought for the Confederate States of America personified the best qualities of America. The preservation of liberty and freedom was the motivating factor in the South's decision to fight the Second American Revolution. The tenacity with which Confederate soldiers fought underscored their beliefs in the rights guaranteed by the Constitution. These attributes are the underpinning of our democratic society and represent the foundation on which this great nation was built.
