Civil War Memorial
to the Soldiers
who so bravely offered
their all to preserve
the Union of States,
1861 to 1865
in memory of our comrades
who sleep in the
peacefully awaiting the
call to the Parade Ground
though many regret thee,
Who stand by thy lone grave today.
Sleep, Sleep, -
though the kindest forget thee.
And thy name from
the earth pass away.
