Confederate Memorial
City Point Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy

Presented to the City of Hopewell on October 26th, 1949, the monument's message is more than a tribute to Confederate soldiers. Statesman and orator Daniel Webster's quote, inscribed on the base, makes it a memorial to the ideals that inspire men. Speaking at the dedication, Mayor D. Lane Elder stated, "Generations come and go, but ideals live on."

This story board was made possible by the generosity of the Hopewell Rotary Club and the City of Hopewell.
