The monument was erected in 1907, by surviving comrades. A plaque on the side reads:

Headquarters Calvary Corps.
April 24, 1865

You have fought your fight. Your task is done. During four years of struggle for liberty you have exhibited courage, fortitude and devotion. You are the victors of more than 200 sternly contested fields. You have participated in more than 1000 conflicts of arms.

You are heroes, veterans, patriots. The bones of your comrades mark the battlefields of Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi. You have done all that human exertions could accomplish. In bidding you adieu I desire to tender my thanks for gallantry in battle. Your fortitude under suffering, and the devotion at all times to the holy cause you have done so much to maintain. I desire also to express my gratitude for your kind feeling you have seen fit to extend to myself and to invoke upon you the blessings of our Heavenly Father in the Cause of Freedom:
Comrades in Arms, I bid you farewell.

Joseph Wheeler
Leut – Gen. Commanding Calvary Corps.
Army of Tennessee

I am a published fine art photographer. I experiment with a variety of subjects such as still life, nature, animals and documentary. My work offers a unique perspective that is simple, yet bold, rich with contrast and color, and lends itself to storytelling that leaves the viewer deciding the plot.

    This is great! I love the lines of the building and the silhouette against the warm colours of the floodlit stone looks fantastic and is framed really well too. A fantastic tribute to a great looking monument. Thanks for adding the details of the plaque too… a great read.
