1. Description of monument.
Uniformed Confederate soldier stands atop a tall pedestal which rests on a tiered base. The figure faces southwest and leans on his rifle with both hands. A canteen and haversack hang from his proper left shoulder and a knife is at his proper left side. He carries a bedroll and a kepi rests on his head.
The monument was initiated and designed by the Orangeburg Confederate Monument Association and was cast in a small town in Massachusetts. It was moved within the town square when the courthouse, where it stood, was razed.
