Death Site Monument on Pine Mountain

1861. 1865.
In Memory Of Lieut. Gen. Leonidas Polk
Who fell on this spot June 14, 1864.
Folding his arms across his breast, He stood gazing on the scenes below, Turning himself around as if To take a farewell view.

Thus standing a cannon shot from the enemy's guns crashed through his breast, and opened a wide door through which his spirit took its flight to join his comrades on the other shore.

Surely the earth never opened her arms to allow the head of a braver man to rest upon her bosom.
Surely the light never pushed the darkness back to make brighter the road that leads to the lamb.
And surely the gates of heaven never opened wider to allow a more manly spirit to enter therein.

Erected by J. Gid & Mary J. Morris. 1902.
