Inscription.  
In Memory of Our
Patriot Dead

We here highly resolve
that these dead shall
not have died in vain.
Lincoln.

We loved our country
Gave our lives for her
Do ye, our children
for her honor live.

Sleep in peace with kindred ashes
Of the noble and the dead.
Hands that never failed their country.
Hearts that never baseness knew.

Erected May 30, 1897


 
Erected 1897 by Wilderness Tent, Women's Relief Corps.
