The Russellville visit is the only Franklin County stop made to date. Additional memorials will likely be visited as I work west toward other states.

Inscriptions

 

 

 

"Erected to the memory of
the soldiers of Franklin County
who enlisted in the cause of the Confederacy.
By the John W Harris Chapter
United Daughters of The Confederacy"
 
 
"to the defenders of the old southland
her altars and her firesides;
they believed they were right;
they proved their faith by their works,
their heroic deeds and 
the unselfish sacrifice of their lives."
 
"They sleep on many a battlefield,
enriched by their heart's best blood
given in defense of the 'Lost Cause,' 
but just and holy still;
the memory of which, and theirs,
shall be forever enshrined 
in the hearts of their mothers, 
their wives, their sisters,
and their daughters."
 
 
 
"No mare the Stars and Bars
above them waves
No more to the charge
the bugle sounds
But lights out
and in their consecrated graves,
they sleep the sleep of eternal peace.
 
In memory, with loving hands
and tender we wrap the flag they loved,
about them, and pray
to them - to the God of Battles.
Render the just meed of praise we here express."
