At Ball's Bluff, near this town on the threshold of Virginia and the Confederacy, the invading army of the North was, on Oct. 21st 1861, utterly defeated and driven into the Potomac. This monument is erected to the memory of those who died in defense of the Lost Cause by their late comrades in arms and a grateful and admiring people. Oct 21st, 1877.

To the
Unknown Confederate Dead
who lie near this monument
noble Sons of Loudoun who

Loudoun Artillery
White's 42nd, Batt. Va. Cav.
Mosby's 43rd, Batt. Va Cav.
13th, 17th, 18th, & 21st. Miss. Inf.

Stoop angels, hither from the skies
There is no holier spot of ground
Than where defeated valor lies
By mourning beauty crowned
