Mt. Pleasant Confederate Civil War Monument

Mt. Pleasant Civil War Monument

This is located in the town square of Mt. Pleasant, in southwest Maury County, along TN243 (Old U.S. 43). It i in honor of Bigby's Greys, a company of a hundred local men who were sworn into Confederate service here on April 20, 1961.

Carved in the monument:
"Crest to crest they bore our banner; Side by side they fell asleep; Hand to hand we rear his token; Heart to heart we kneel and weep."

History has shined them immortal.
