Columbus in Franklin County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Franklin County Civil War Memorial
and in loving memory of the men
who on land and sea
upheld the honor and integrity
of our country and flag
in the War of the Rebellion
this monument is erected.
Rest on embalmed and sainted dead
Dear as the blood ye gave,
no impious footsteps here shall tread,
the herbage of your grave.
The bugle call, the battle ball,
again shall rouse them never;
they fought and fell,
they served us well,
their furlough lasts forever.
Erected 1890 by Franklin County Ex-Soldiers and Sailors Association and the County Commissioners.
