    Inscriptive and Memorial

    On the Home Guards who perished in the Defense of Lexington, Missouri.

    The men who here in harness died
    Fell not in vain, though in defeat.
    They by their end well fortified
    The Cause, and built retreat
    (With memory of their valor tried)
    For emulous hearts in many an after fray--
    Hearts sore beset, which died at bay.
