The men who started the work of building the monument, and all who aided them, have cause to feel grateful for the glorious result. It took only a short whatue. They emblematize the four branches of the military service: the cavalry, the infantry, the artillery and the marine.

Hence, I was directed to report to and conduct examinations in the armies of Generals Lee and Jackson in Virginia, General Bragg in Tennessee, and General Pemberton in Mississippi.
