1. Battle of Dutton's Hill Monument
Inscription.  Here off duty until the last reveille, lie the southern soldiers, in numbers who were slain in this country during the war of the succession. They fell among strangers, unknown and unfriended. Yet not unhonored; for strangers hands have gathered their ashes here, and placed the shaft above them, that constancy and valor, though displayed in a fruitless enterprise, may not be unremembered.
 
Erected 1875.
