"A long-cherished desire for a monument to these brave soldiers in Mount Jackson Cemetery took tangible form when in 1902. Mrs. L. H. Rinker, historian of the [The Mount Jackson UDC] Chapter, secured from Mr. Thomas F. Ryan, a former Virginian and a friend of the South, the handsome gift of $750. The Chapter then took on new zeal and soon raised the amount necessary to build the monument. It was unveiled June 4, 1903." (Submitted on May 31, 2014, by Allen C.
