Statuary by Frederick Barnicoat representing the artillery of the Confederacy at the base of the Alabama Confederate Monument on Capitol Hill in Montgomery.
The inscription reads:
"When this historic shaft shall crumbling lie in ages hence, in woman's heart will be, a folded flag, a thrilling page unrolled, a deathless song of Southern chivalry." I.M.P.O.
