Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery in St. Louis County, Missouri — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
To The Confederate Dead 1861 - 1865
Who knows but again the old flags, ragged and torn, snapping in the wind, may face each other and flutter, pursuing and pursued, while the cries of victory fill a summer day?
And after the battle, then the slain and wounded will arise, and all will meet together under the two flags, all sound and well, and there will be talking and laughter and cheers, and all will say: ["]Did it not seem real? Was it not as in the old days?"
[Dedicated May 1, 1988]
Erected 1988 by Jefferson Barracks Civil War Historical Association, Missouri Division - Sons of Confederate Veterans, and the Missouri Society Military Order of the Stars and Bars.
