Confederate States of America

— Commander, Texas Brigade, Army of Tennessee —

(front)
Born: March 1, 1831
Died: On this field, November 30, 1864
A moment before he fell, he urged his Texans on:
"Forward, men, forward! Never let it be said that Texans lag in a fight!"
They never did, and neither did he.
God rest his soul.

This monument erected through the dedication of:
Austin Civil War Round Table - Austin, Texas
Society of the Order of the Southern Cross
Stasswender Memorials - Austin, Texas
City of Granbury, Texas
A.S. Johnson Chapter No. 105, U.C.D. - Austin, Texas
& other friends who also cherish undaunted courage

"This band of heroes..."
Major General Patrick R. Cleburne, C.S.A.

Near this place on November 30, 1864, the men of Granbury's Texas Brigade gallantly charged, suffered, died, and gave all for a cause they passionately believed in and which soon was to be forever lost.
