Wall plaque

Sandwiched between Paul Holder Realty and Auction Co., 108 East Main Street, and Grizzell's Jewelry Store, 110 East Main Street, in downtown McMinnville, Tennessee, is this unique personal wall plaque. It reads:

"Jesse Walling
I enlisted in the Lord's cause when young. Later I enlisted in the Confederate cause and was wounded at Murfreesboro and later discharged by President Davis. The lord has been good to me 85 years."
