Regarding Dardanelle Confederate Monument. A Civil War soldier stands with a blanket roll draped from proper right to proper left side. He holds a rifle, muzzle up in front of him with stock at his proper left foot. There is a cut tree trunk behind his proper right leg. The sculpture is mounted atop a tall square base adorned on the front with a relief of a wreath over crossed banners. The front projection of the base contains a reservoir where a fountain once operated. The plumbing has been removed and it is no longer functional. The sculpture is set upon a concrete slab foundation. Source: Art Inventories Catalog, Smithsonian American Art Museums (IAS AR000305)
