Their brave deeds and heroic self-sacrifice will be fresh in our memory as long as life shall last. This sacred spot is being cared for by a little band of devoted ‘Daughters of the Confederacy,’ and now we appeal to the States represented by the brave men who lie in the cemetery to assist us in erecting a memorial to their memory, which will last as long as time endures. If the eyes of any friends of these dear ones should fall upon these lines, we pray them not to turn a deaf ear to our pleadings, but remember the fallen heroes with a liberal contribution, which can be sent to myself.
