Text:

Here sleep, known but to God, approximately one hundred and fifty Confederate solders, most of whom died from disease, or wounds in the Confederate hospitals that were located near this spot. Some where killed in a skirmish with Federal raiders near here on July 19, 1864.

Although Federal troops raided and burned part of this city, Confederate hospitals were not molested. Brave and gallant Confederate women rendered valuable aid in caring for soldiers in Confederate hospitals here and elsewhere.
