Yes, if the inscriptions are worth reading I certainly do, the problem with the Texas monuments are they are made with a red granite and no matter how I have tried its difficult to take a picture of the text. I have posted a picture of the inscription on the Bonham monument after this post..
This is just a sample of some off Confederate monuments in various places throughout the South:
They fought not for the Conquest, but for Liberty and their Homes.
These men need no Eulogy for “Their works do follow them.”
“Our Confederate dead 1861 - 1865. To those who fought in their ragged old suits of gray."
"No nation rose so white and fair, None fell so pure of crime Worthy to have lived and known our gratitude Worthy to be hallowed and held In tender remembrance Worthy the fadeless fame which Confederate soldiers won Who gave themselves in life And death for us For the honor of Georgia For the rights of the States For the liberties of the South For the principles of the Union, as these were handed down to them, By the fathers of our common Country."
“How sleep the brave, who sink to rest, by all their country’s wishes blest! By fairy hands, their knell is rung; by forms unseen their dirge is sung; their honor comes, a pilgrim gray; to bless the turf, that wraps their clay.”
“Let this stranger who may in future time read this inscription and recognize that there were men whom power could not corrupt, death could not terrify, defeat could not dishonor; let these virtues plead for judgement in the cause for which they perished. Let Georgia 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 her memories, teaching all who may claim the same birthright, that truth, virtue and patriotism endure forever.
"It is better to have fought and lost than not to have fought at all."
"These men held that these states made the union, that the Constitution is the evidence of covenant that the people of the state are subject to no power except as they have agreed that free convention binds the parties to it, that there is sanctity in oath and obligation in contracts, and in defense of these principles they mutually pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor."
“Many of whom gave all, all of whom gave much.”
"He sprang into battle line to defend his invaded country. He won marvellous victories; He suffered no discreditable defeat; he never lost fortitude in hours of disaster."
“No braver soldier, no truer patriots ever adorned the history of any nation, they have won their title to an immortality of love and reverence. Nor shall your glory be forgotten while fame her record keeps.”
"When marble wears away and monuments are dust, the songs that guard our soldier's clay will still fulfil their trust."
"Fate denied them victory, but crowned them with glorious immortality."
"Any people with contempt for their heritage have lost faith in themselves and no nation can long survive without pride in its traditions"
"These men suffered all, and sacrificed all, dared all and died.”
“On flames eternal camping ground, their silent tents are spread, and Glory Guards with solemn round the bivouac of the Dead.”
"The call went out from Richmond to townships great and small our Southern land is threatened the Yankees tread our soil. Our boys rose up to meet the foe and protect our Dixieland. They forced them out of Sumter, then Jackson made a stand. In many different places our boys fought valiantly, in summer heat and winter cold with Johnston, Jackson and Lee. Through many battles won and lost our boys were proud and brave, for heritage and southern rights, they gave their all to save.
NOT FOR FAME OR REWARD NOT FOR PLACE OR RANK NOT LURED BY AMBITION OR GOADED BY NECESSITY BUT IN SIMPLE OBEDIENCE TO DUTY AS THEY UNDERSTOOD IT THESE MEN SUFFERED ALL SACRIFICED ALL DARED ALL AND DIED NO STATELY ABBEY WILL EVER COVER THEIR REMAINS THEIR DUST WILL NEVER REPOSE BENEATH FRETTED OR FRESCOED ROOF NO COSTLY BRONZE WILL EVER BLAZON THEIR NAMES FOR POSTERITY TO HONOR BUT THE POTOMAC AND THE RAPPAHANNOCK THE JAMES AND THE CHICKAHOMINY THE CUMBERLAND AND THE TENNESSEE THE MISSISSIPPI AND THE RIO GRANDE AS THEY RUN THEIR LONG RACE FROM THE MOUNTAINS TO THE SEA WILL SING OF THEIR PROWESS FOREVERMORE.
