1. Oak Grove Cemetery Confederate Veterans Memorial
Inscription.
This monument is dedicated to Remember and honor
Our Confederate veterans who endured so much
For their homes, their wife’s and their sweet hearts;

So as we now bow our heads in prayer for our Confederate Veterans
May we remember to teach our children the meaning of
Freedom, honor, respect and sacrifice
For they are gone but not forgotten, lest we forget.
