Inscriptions

 

 
"Leflore County's tribute to 
her sons and daughters
of the Southern Confederacy
Erected under the auspices of
the Varina Jefferson Davis Chapter
United Daughters of The Confederacy
Oct. 9, 1919"

 

"A testimonial of our affection and reference for the Confederate Soldier;
the memory of whose brave deeds and heroic life, 
and the principles for which he sacrificed so much
we bequeath to our children through all future generations"
"To the Confederate woman
None has told the story of here,
whose heart and life were a sacrifice.
Offered as valiantly and unselfishly upon the altar of her Southland,
as was any warrior's life upon the battlefield. 
So to her in part, we have placed this monument,
that all may know she loved her country,
and enfold her memory in eternal glory,
cherish it forever."

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.
