To the everlasting memory of
those South Carolinians who
offered their lives upon the fields of
Vicksburg for the Southern Confederacy.
This monument is dedicated
by the South Carolina Division
United Daughters of the Confederacy.
"Let the stranger
Who may in future times
Read this inscription,
Recognize that these were men
Whom power could not corrupt,
Whom death could not terrify,
Whom defeat could not dishonor,
And let their Virtues plead for just judgment
Of the cause in which they perished;
Let the South Carolinian
Of another generation
That the State taught them
How to live and how to die;
And from her broken fortunes
She has preserved for her children
The priceless treasure of their memories
Who may claim the same birth-right
That Truth, Courage, and Patriotism,
William Henry Triscot
