1. Montgomery County Confederate Monument
Inscription.  To Montgomery County Confederate Soldiers

The muffled drums sad roll has beat
The soldier’s last tattoo;
No more on life’s parade shall meet
That brave and fallen few.
On Fame’s eternal camping-ground
Their silent tents are spread,
And Glory guards, with solemn round,
The bivouac of the dead.
 
Erected 1880.
