Description of Monument:
A Confederate soldier stands at parade rest, atop a tall granite shaft. He is dressed in uniform, with a brimmed hat and jacket. His hands are at chest level holding the barrel of his rifle, the butt resting by his proper left foot. The shaft is decorated with a relief of crossed rifles on the front, and a relief of a flag on the side. On the mid-section of the base, there are upturned cannon barrels on each corner. The lower section of the base is multi-tiered with a relief of crossed sabres on the front. From the Smithsonian American Art Museum
