Of the Culpepper County Minutemen. 
 
Inscription:
Virginians Killed in the battle of Point Pleasant
Burial of the Dead.
The day after the battle, the bodies of the men slain therein, together with those who died of wounds that night were buried in different places; the following Officers-Colonel Charles Lewis, Colonel John Field, Captain John Murray, Captain Robert McClennahan, Captain Samuel Wilson, Lieutenant Hugh Allen, John Frugg, George Cameron-being laid to rest inside the magazine directly on the upper point of land, at the confluence of the rivers-now Tu-Endi-Wei Park. All were interred without the pomp of war. But that day the cheers of many a Virginia-West Virginia mountaineer were bedewed with tears.
