1. Confederate Memorial Marker
Inscription.
( East face )
[Emblem: Sons of Confederate Veterans]
In honor of the more than 600
gallent soldiers from Johnson County
who not for fame, reward or ambition
but simple obedience to duty
as they understood it.
These men suffered all, sacrificed all,
dared all, and died.
Their cause was noble and just,
and Almighty God alone shall be
their vindicator
( West face )
[Emblem: Sons of Confederate Veterans]
Bravely they sacrificed
Gratefully we remember
