This large memorial honors those from Texas who died for the Confederacy in the Civil War. Around the large granite base are etched the Texas reasoning for the war as given in 1901 which was state’s rights, the numbers of soldiers on both sides of the war who served and lost their lives, the dates of southern state’s secession, and a chronological list of the major battles of the war. The memorial is topped by a life-size statue of Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederacy and on the four corners are life-size statues of three Confederate soldiers and one sailor.
