Their graves kept Green.

Their graves have been kept green year after year, decorated with the most beautiful of Nature's offerings, and every possible respect [389] has been shown to the memory of the Southern heroes, and nearly all this time the association has kept in mind the crowning effort of their labors, the erection of a monument to the memory of the Confederate dead.

This last work has been finished, and on Monday the monument will be formally unveiled in the presence of many thousands of people, and with the most imposing ceremonies.
