Shiloh in Hardin County, Tennessee — The American South (East South Central)
sent to the Battle of Shiloh
seventy nine organizations of infantry
ten organizations of cavalry and
twenty three batteries of artillery
How bravely and how well they fought
let the tablets of history on this field tell
As a greeting to the living remnant of
that host of gray and in honor of its dead
whether sleeping in distant places or
graveless here in traceless dust
this monument has been lifted up by the
hands of a loving and grateful people
