North Charleston in Charleston County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Sons of Charleston Confederate Monument
of the sons of Charleston
fell around her walls;
sleep on many battlefields
Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania,
Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia,
Louisiana, Mississippi, and
lie in distant graves around
their Northern prisons.
These died for their State
Testimonial of Ladies Memorial Association
to its founder and first president
We chant no requiem where she's sleeping nor cry "Alas!"
with sorrow's breath, we send our triumph song to heaven,
and this its music - faithful unto death.E. B. Cheesborough

The Confederate States of America: 22 February 1869
preserves the memory
every part of Carolina,
her sister states of the South,
in the defence (sic) of this city.
In proud and grateful remembrance
of their devotion, constancy and valour;
who against overwhelming odds
by sea and by land
kept Charleston virgin and invincible
to the last Founder's mark appears.
