Inscriptions adorn three faces of the monument and read as follows:

West Face
Who throughout a long and bloody struggle displayed a heroism and devotion to duty unsurpassed. If ever equaled in the annals of war.

South Face
Who wrung from the great commander of the opposing armies the humiliating confession that they could be overcome only by attrition. And in the deadly contest in which they engaged their spirits were never broken. Their courage never quailed. Their convictions never deserted. And their manhood was never surrendered

North Face
Erected by the women of Barnwell to the memory of their countrymen who fell in the war for the rights of the states. And who died to maintain the principal that governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed.

Be sure to also check out the famous Barnwell Sundial Clock, which is located on the Barnwell County Courthouse grounds.
