1. Monument To The Confederate Dead
Inscription.  
(south face)
Dulce et decorum
est pro patria mori.

Erected
by the
United Daughters
of the
Confederacy
to the
Confederate Dead.


We care not whence they came,
Dear in their lifeless clay!
Whether unknown or known to fame,
Their cause and country still the same.
They died—and wore the gray.​

(east face)
They sleep well
in their unknown
graves on this
far-away
battle field.​

(north face)
They gave their lives
in defense of their
country on the fields
of the First and
Second Manassas.​

(west face)
But for them the
counting of time
is not: for they
dwell in the
City of God.​
 
Erected 1904 by The Bull Run Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy.
