Thibodaux in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana — The American South (West South Central)
Our Confederate Dead
We care not whence they came
Dear is their lifeless clay
Whether unknown or known to fame
Their cause and country still the same
They died and wore Gray.

Erected 1904 by Mildred Lee Chapter U.D.C.
