This Tablet Is Reverently
Inscribed to the Memory Of
Those Who Went From That Part
Of The Town of Canaan Which
Later Became North Canaan, And
Who, With Valor and Patriotism,
Defended the Flag of Our Country
In The Colonial Wars
The War of The Revolution
The War of 1812
Although time has dimmed the record of their
Names, their deeds are held in everlasting
