This sixty-two foot granite shaft sits on a square, granite base with bronze plaques on its base and is topped by a bronze statue of Confederate soldier standing at rest. The plaques pay tribute to General J.J. Dickinson, who commanded the Florida Division, General Kirby Smith, and Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson and all Florida Confederate soldiers with a small poem in their honor. The memorial was donated by Florida Confederate veteran Charles G. Hemming who served in the Jacksonville Light Infantry and the Third Regiment ; these units encamped briefly in Jacksonville during the war. The park is named for Mr. Hemming. The monument was designed and constructed by George H. Mitchell of Chicago.
