Camden in Ouachita County, Arkansas — The American South (West South Central)
To Our Confederate Women
1861 - 1865
To the Confederate women
Whose pious ministration
To our wounded soldiers,
Soothed the last hours of those
Who died far from the objects
Of their tenderest love;
Whose domestic labors
Contributed much to supply
The wants of our defenders
In the field, whose zealous
Faith in our cause shone
A guilding star undimmed
By the darkest clouds of war;
Them under all the privations
To which they were subjected;
And whose patriotism
Will teach their children to
Emulate the deeds of their sires
