Justice was His Cardinal Trait

Today's epitaph was found on the marble ledger stone made for Henry C. Green, located in Oak Hill Cemetery; Talbotton, Georgia. At the head of his ledger marker was a military stone that included an engraving of a "Southern Cross." Here is the complete inscriptions from both gravestones:

Henry C. Greene
Co I
46 GA Inf
C.S.A.

Sacred to the Memory of
Henry C. Greene
Born in Talbot Co, GA
June 18, 1844
Died in Talbot Co, GA
Nov 24, 1901

Justice was his cardinal trait, but at all times,
The kindness and generosity of his soul shone forth,
He was in truth one of God's noblemen.
