Regarding Mulberry Confederate Memorial. According to newspaper accounts, a feud between Mulberry and a neighboring community in the 1930s resulted in vandals cutting off the statue's head and demanding ransom. After a negotiated payment, the head was reattached. During a 2019 restoration of the monument, appraisers determined the repair job would hold for another century.
