Harrison Confederate Marker

Harrison, Boone County, Arkansas


This monument perpetuates the memory of those who true to the instincts of their birth, faithful to the teachings of their fathers, constant in their love for the state, died in the performance of their duty, who have glorified a fallen cause by the simple manhood of their lives, the patient endurance of suffering and the heroism of death and who, in the dark hours of imprisonment in the hopelessness of the hospital, in the short sharp agony of the field found support and consolation in the belief that at home they would not be forgotten let the stranger who may in future times read this inscription recognize that these were men whom power could not corrupt, whom death could not terrify, whom defeat could not dishonor and let their virtues plead for just judgment of the case in which they perished.

Let the Arkansawyer of another generation remember that the state taught them how to live and how to die and that from her broken fortunes she has preserved for her children the priceless treasure of their memories teaching all who may claim the same birthright that truth, courage and patriotism endure forever.

Dedicated by the General Jo Shelby Camp No. 1414 of the Arkansas Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans in Harrison, Arkansas on April 6, 1986, to honor the memory of those gallant Confederates who fought valiantly for their beloved southland.
