Inscriptions

 

 

 

 
"Erected as a tribute to the
Confederate Patriots
who fell at the 
Battle of Corinth
in October 1862
On fame's eternal camping ground
Their silent tents are spread
And glory guards with solemn roungs
The bivouac of the dead"
"They were the knightiest of the knightly race
Who since the day of old
Has kept the lamps of chivalry
Alight in hearts of Gold"
 
 
 
 
 
 
"Col W. P. Rogers
2nd Texas Reg't

Killed at Ft. Robinette

Oct. 4, 1862

 "As long as courage, manliness and patriotism exist,
the name W.P. Rogers will be honored among men.
He fell in the front of the battle,
in the center of the enemies stronghold.
He sleeps and glory is his sentinel."

Your assistance is needed

Can you offer a place to pitch my tent? One of the largest expenses of this tour is camping and lodging fees. I usually arrive at my campsite just before dusk and depart prior to 8:30 AM. Click on the "Contact" menu option to send me a message.
