Staunton, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
Augusta County Confederates Plaque
Commemorates, To Generations
Which Knew Then Not,
The Virginia Volunteers
No Rebels They, But Worthy Sons Of Patriotic Sites, Who Took Arms In The Hour Of Their State’s Extremity, When Argument For Peace Was Ended, To Defend The Soil, The Homes And The Consti- Tutional Rights Won By Their Fathers. The World Has Seen No Braver Nor Truer Soldiery Than The Yeomen Whose Deeds Made Glorious This Valley Of The Shenandoah, And Their Fame Rests Secure As Their Native Hills.
If They Justified Not The Cause For Which They Were Ready To Die, They Ennobled Themselves, And May Be “Forgiven By The Sons Of Men Who For Conscience Sake Fought Against Their Government At Lexington And Bunker Hill.”
