Battle

of

Nashville

1864




North Facing

Oh, valorous gray, in the grave of your fate,
Oh, glorious blue, in the long dead years,
You were sown in sorrow and harrowed in hate,
But your harvest is a Nation's tears,
For the message you left through the land has sped,
From the lips of God to the heart of man:
Let the past be past, let the dead be dead,
Now and forever, American!


South Facing

The Spirit of youth holds in check the contending
forces that struggled here in the fierce battle of
Nashville, December 16th, 1864, sealing forever
the bond of union by the blood of our heroic dead of the
World War, 1917-1918.

A Monument like this, standing on such memories
having no reference to utilities, becomes a sentiment,
a poet, a prophet, an orator to every passerby.
