More about this memorial. The marker is part of Veterans Memorial Plaza and is one of several individual and collective war memorials at the site, including two plaques honoring Confederate Veterans who were buried in East Volusia County.
The memorial consists of a square slab of pink marble, and at the center there appears to have at one time been a round column or base for a planter or statue. It has since been removed. Upon the slab is mounted a plaque, at the bottom of which appears the emblem of the United Daughters of the Confederacy.
1. Plaque Removal
In the early hours of Friday, August 18, 2017, this plaque was removed from its location in Riverfront Park, Daytona Beach, Florida, at the direction of Daytona Beach elected officials. Reportedly, the plaque will, at some point, be relocated inside the Halifax Historical Museum which is located a few blocks from Riverfront Park.
