(left half)
Erected to the memory of the 4,000 brave men of Allegheny County. Who fell in the great struggle to maintain the integrity of our union. The eye of God rests upon their graves even when unmarked by man. And their sleeping dust shall arise in the morning of their resurrection.
(right half)
With malice towards none, with charity for all with firmness. In the right as God gives us to see the night, let us finish the work we are in. To bind up the nation's wounds, to care for those who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphans. To do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.
