Confederate Square, Gonzales
To the women of the confederacy whose hearts bled; whose hands healed, whose pride was crucified, yet who were never conquered by the bitterness of war nor the devastation of the reconstruction. To their glorious memory this memorial is dedicated. Donated by H. K. Jones, Captain of infantry C.S.A. erected by U.D.C. June 3, 1937.
