1. Prayer Composed By Ellison Capers Marker
Inscription. "Almighty God, our heavenly Father, we adore thy love and providence in the history of our country, and especially would we thank thee for our Confederate history

"We thank thee for its pure record of virtue, valor and for the inspiring reflection that despite its bitter disappointments and sorrows it proclaims for us to all the world that we came through its years of trial and struggles with our battered shields pure, and nothing to regret in our defense of the rights and honor of our Southland.

"Give us grace, our heavenly Father, faithfully to accept thy will concerning us, and make us all to glorify thee in a sincere obedience to thy holy commandments, through the merits and mediation of thy son, our only savior, Jesus Christ." Amen
