Louisburg in Franklin County, North Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Franklin's Confederate Soldiers Monument
—To Our Confederate Dead —
In memory of Franklin's Confederate Soldiers that their heroic deeds, sublime self-sacrifice and undying devotion to duty and country may never be forgotten.
"When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made.
All the world wondered."
They gave their lives and fortunes for constitutional liberty and state sovereignty in obedience to the teachings of the fathers, who framed the constitution and established the union of these states.
At Appomattox God said to the Confederate soldier "about face". In obedience to the celestial order there was a change of front, and the gray line faced the future unashamed and unafraid.
