Also see . . . Halifax Courthouse Statues. The first confederate monument was erected in 1911. When the statue arrived it turned out to be one of a Union soldier. It was disposed of and a new one was ordered and placed on top of the high pedestal on the front lawn. In the 1920's a tree blew over and knocked the statue off, breaking it. Another statue was ordered and in 1935 the high pedestal was shortened. (Submitted on May 21, 2010, by Bernard Fisher of Mechanicsville, Virginia.)
