WHERE IS THIS PLAQUE NOW????


DEDICATED BY THE 
ALBERT SIDNEY JOHNSTON CAMP 
SONS OF CONFEDERATE VETERANS 
NORMAN H. BEARD 
COMMANDER 
DECEMBER 2ND  1924 

IN LOVING MEMORY OF OUR CONFEDERATE SOLDIERS, 
WHOSE SACRED DUST LIES BURIED IN THE SHADOW 
OF THIS BUILDING.  THE GREAT SOUL OF THE SOUTH 
CAN NEVER FORGET HER HEROES SO LONG AS LIBERTY, HONOR 
AND LOVE OF COUNTRY AND THE HEROIC 
DEEDS OF THE BRAVE AND GOOD ARE CHERISHED 
AS VIRTUES, AND SO LONG WILL THEIR NAMES LIVE 
IN BRIGHT LETTERS IN THE PAGES OF HISTORY. 
FROM THE EARLIEST DAWN OF CIVILIZATION 
DOWN THE CORRIDORS OF TIME TO THE PRESENT DAY, 
NO ARMY OF SOLDIERS IN ANY CLIME OR AGE 
EVER EXCELLED THEM IN PATRIOTISM, VALOR, CHIVALRY, 
HONOR AND DEVOTION TO HOME AND 
COUNTRY.  THEY HAVE CEASED FROM THEIR 
FIGHTING, THEY HAVE FINISHED THEIR LABORS, 
AND HAVE ENTERED INTO THE GLORIOUS REWARD 
THAT AWAITS THE FAITHFUL.
