(March 2009) Enlarge Cast Iron C.S. cemetery marker: These markers were originally sold by the United Daughters of the Confederacy to the families of Confederate veterans in the late 1880's and 1890's before free marble markers were provided by the United States Government through the Veteran's Administration.. Hundreds of these Crosses of Honor were sold to mark the graves of departed loved ones for $12 a piece. The opposite side reads 'Deo Vindici, 1861-1865' (which is latin for 'God is our vindicator'). This marker is of unknown origin and was found in the attic of a home in Bessemer, Alabama when sold some years ago. It is displayed here to honor all Confederate soldiers from Alabama who served in the Civil War from 1861-1865
