(Left of Monument) :
These traprocks, aged two hundred million years, stand eternally, natural monuments towering high for the rebels and their cause for rebels without cause can quickly fall. See to it now your voices rise in peace for the ears of generations yet to learn they have the power to abolish wars.
Dan Mahoney

(Tablet on the Rock) :
225 years ago patriot Thomas Paine wrote about his experience in Fort Lee in "The Crisis". He spoke of "summer soldiers" and "sunshine patriots". Those were the times that tried men's souls. At that, the darkest hour of our American Revolution, Paine, General Washington and the troops of the American Army turned Retreat into Victory. The retreat road out of Fort Lee led to the establishment of our America. The world was turned upside down by those brave patriots. We rededicate this monument to their cause, American Liberty.
