Inscription.  
Front (East Side)
In memory of the
Confederate
Soldiers
of
Jackson County Florida
North Side
We care not whence they came,
Dear in their lifeless clay!
Whether unknown, or known to fame,
Their cause and country
Still the same-
They died - and wore the gray
West Side
In God We Trust
South Side
Of the warriors tried and true,
who bore the flag of our
peoples trust,
and fell in a cause, though lost,
still just,
and died for me and you.
