This beautiful memorial is located in the town of Clearview. Clearview is one of only 13 of the original 50 all-black towns founded in the early 20th Century. Today, the town has no commercial buildings, and only a population of 48, but the town is fiercely loyal and faithful to its memory of three of its former citizens.

The monument is a granite slab which is engraved and has been placed on a raised concrete platform, with two flagpoles. The monument reads:

Clearview War Memorial
This memorial is dedicated to all who served --

We will never forget the three brave men who lost
their lives on the battlefields protecting our freedom
They are:

James B. Black
WWII - 1944
U.S. Army

Leonard "Mutt" Mayberry
WWII - 1944

Anthony Grundy
Vietnam - 1968

Fear not that ye have died for naught
The torch you threw us we caught
Millions of hands will hold it high
And freedoms light shall never die
