Raleigh in Wake County, North Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Erected A.D. 1870
Sleep warrior, sleep the struggle.
The battle cry is hushed.
Our standards have been lowered.
Our blooming hopes been crushed.
Sleep for thy name is cherished
By the bravest and the best,
And soldier’s hearts and woman’s love
Are with thee in thy rest.
