Long Description:


This monument is in the traditional style seen at Southern courthouses, although the soldier at the top looks a bit older than many.


There are inscriptions on all four sides. The main inscription is seen above.

”NO BRAVER BLED
FOR BETTER LAND
NOR BETTER LAND
HAD CAUSE SO GRAND"

and

”LORD GOD OF HOSTS
BE WITH US YET.
LEST WE FORGET!
LEST WE FORGET!"

The last inscription is the dedication date. The base reads:

OUR HEROES
