MISSISSIPPI
JULY 1ST. 2ND. 3RD. 1863

  ON THIS GROUND OUR BRAVE SIRES FOUGHT FOR THEIR RIGHTEOUS CAUSE.  
IN GLORY THEY SLEEP WHO GAVE TO IT THEIR LIVES.
TO VALOR, THEY GAVE NEW DIMENSIONS OF COURAGE.
TO DUTY, ITS NOBLEST FULFILLMENT.
TO POSTERITY, THE SACRED HERITAGE OF HONOR.

JULY 3, 1863

    THE 11TH MISSISSIPPI INFANTRY REGIMENT,
    WITH ITS RANKS GROWING THINNER AT EVERY
    STEP, ADVANCED WITH THE COLORS TO THE STONE
    WALL NEAR BRIAN BARN.

    THE REGIMENT WAS HERE "SUBJECTED TO A
    MOST GALLING FIRE OF MUSKETRY AND ARTILLERY
    THAT SO REDUCED THE ALREADY THINNED RANKS
    THAT ANY FURTHER EFFORT TO CARRY THE POSITION  
    WAS HOPELESS, AND THERE WAS NOTHING LEFT
    BUT TO RETIRE."


      REPORT OF BRIG. GEN. JOSEPH R. DAVIS
