Capt. Addison Harvey
Born June 1837,
Killed April 9, 1865.

Just as the country's flag was furled forever, death saved him the pain of defeat.

Long since has beat the last tattoo
Disbanded are the 'Gray' and 'Blue'
And peace reigns now where troopers drew
Their sabres bright to date and do
Led forward by Ad. Harvey

Killed in Battle
Lieut. Thomas Land
Thomas Field
John Graham
James Renfro
John Kilgore
William Bates
James Tucker
John Morrow
John Catlett
James Archibald

Erected by the survivors of Harvey's Scouts to perpetuate the memory of their Captain and Comrades in Arms.
