More about this marker. The marker is part of a 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. Whatever is was, it has since been removed or stolen. Upon the slab is mounted a plaque, at the bottom of which appears the emblem of the United Daughters of the Confederacy.
