Inscription.

Clement A. Evans, Brig. Gen., C.S.A., began his military career in his native Stewart Co., Ga., where he was commissioned Major in Co. E, 31st Ga. Infantry. He rapidly rose in rank and in Nov. 1864, was put in command of a division, succeeding Gen. John B. Gordon. He led his men in virtually all battles in the Virginia campaign and was engaged in the last charge of the War and surrendered under Lee at Appomattox.

The remainder of his life was spent in public service as a Methodist Minister, trustee of three colleges, and originator of an educational loan fund to aid young men gain a college education. He was editor of the twelve-volume, "Confederate Military History", and served as a Commander-in-Chief of the United Confederate Veterans.
