Another Confederate Monument


Here's another in a continuing series of memorials and monuments to the soldiers who died during the War Between the States. This one is located in a small square in Waycross, GA.

"Erected by the Francis S. Bartow Chapter U.D.C. to the Confederate Veterans" Now you know.

There wasn't anything written on it, so I couldn't tell how long it had been there, but this wreath of magnolia leaves was near the base of the monument. It was in pretty nice condition, so it couldn't have been there too long. Somebody must still remember their veterans, even 150 years later.

All these monuments seem to have the same soldier at the top. OK, maybe not the same, but close.
