"No braver bled for a
brighter land
no brighter land had
a cause so grand."


East face
"Their memories e'er
shall remain for us,
and their names, bright,
names, without stain
for us:
'our heroes in gray."

North face
"Upward, onward, no
retreat,
they struggled, they
toiled, they conquered
defeat,
those men with their
thinning locks of
grey.
God bless those boys
of the sixties, our
veterans of today!"

West face
Dead heroes! Did we
hear one say?
Dead, never! They will
live for aye
in hearts of love;
on story's page
they'll live through
every coming age;
they'll live while
valor's deeds are sung
in praise from the heart
and tongue.

Regarding Lee County Confederate Monument. Description: Full-length portrait of Robert E. Lee. He wears a military uniform with long riding boots. His proper left arm is bent and his hand holds the hilt of the sword hanging on his proper left side. In his proper right hand he holds a hat. The marble figure stands atop a tall marble shaft and base. On the front face of the shaft is a bas-relief laurel wreath. At the bottom of the shaft is a bas-relief of crossed swords with flags. On two opposite sides of the base block are cannon which serve as water spouts for a fountain. The base stands in the center of a fountain pool which has been filled in with dirt.
