Isle of Wight in Isle of Wight County, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
Isle of Wight County Confederate Monument
Isle of Wight’s loving tribute,
to her heroes of 1861 to 1865.
“They bravely fought
They bravely fell
They wore the gray
They wore it well”
“Bright were the lives they gave for us;
The land they struggled to save for us
Will not forget its warriors yet
Who sleep in so many graves for us”
“They bleed – We weep
We live - They sleep.”
Dedicated May 30, 1905
“Glorious is his fate,
and envied is his lot,
who for his country
fights and for it dies.”
There is a true glory
and a true honor:
the glory of duty done
the honor of the integrity
