Sacred to the memory of our Confederate Dead: true patriots. They fought for home and country. For the holy principles of self government - the only true liberty. Their sublime self-sacrifices and unsurpassed valor will teach future generations the lesson of high born patriotism, of devotion to duty, of exalted courage, of Southern chivalry.

History has enshrined them immortal.
The Dixie Chapter of United Daughters of the Confederacy No. 35, organized Sep. 21, 1894 to aid in perpetuating the glorious memory of
Our Martyred Heroes.

"This marble minstrel's voiceless stone,
in deathless song shall tell,
when many a vanished year hath flown,
the story how ye fell."
Rededication Ceremony
24 March 1996

Fighting for the preservation of
family homeland and rights
is never a lost cause.

So great the valor,
so supreme the sacrifice;
so red the rose...

And the fame of that nameless nation
on history's page shall shine
as our heroes grand oblation
in our hearts has found a shrine.
