Inscription.  
[north face]
Sons of the choicest strain of American blood,
scions of revolutionary stock,
citizens of the purest section of this Union,
they lived true to every honorable tradition
that illuminates the pages of our history
and at the call of duty laid down their lives,
a noble sacrifice on the altar of their country.

[west face]
Yea and when thrones shall crumble down,
and human pride and grandeur fall —
perishing glories all —
the pure devotion of thy valiant heart
shall live in Heaven of which it is a part.

[east face]
Tell it as you may
it never can be told,
the story of the glory
of the men who wore the gray.
