Greenwood in Greenwood County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Textile Workers Monument
Not until each loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly
Will God unroll the pattern
And explain the reason why...
The dark threads are as needful
In the weaver's skillful hand,
As the threads of gold and silver...
For the pattern which he planned.
In dedication to management and workers of the textile industry whose sacrifices helped to achieve the goals of our armed forces in past wars.
Erected 1983 by Veterans of Foreign Wars and Ladies Auxiliary Greenwood Post 8131.
