Thibodaux in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana — The American South (West South Central)
Our Confederate Dead
We care not whence they came
Dear is their lifeless clay
Whether unknown or known to fame
Their cause and country still the same
They died and wore Gray.
In memory of the thirty-nine members of Co. A. 2nd Texas Cavalary, who fell at the Battle of Lafourche Crossing June 21, 1863
Erected 1904 by Mildred Lee Chapter U.D.C.
