1. Erath County CSA War Memorial
Inscription.  In memory of Major George B. Erath, CSA and the more than 600 Confederate Veterans of the War between the States, who rest beneath the rich soil of Erath County.

Ordinary men from across the South took up arms to fight an extraordinary war. Together they became one of the most acclaimed fighting forces in military history. The South devastated by war and the hard life during reconstruction caused families to move to Texas where they hoped for a better life. Erath County prospered as veterans built homes, schools, churches, farms and businesses. CSA veterans became leaders in our towns and communities.

They are our ancestors. Their lives, our sacred heritage, we remember with honor and devotion.
 
Erected 2001 by The Sons and Daughters of Confederate Veterans.
