Long Description:
Pensacola’s tribute to the Confederacy is located in Lee Square, bounded on the east and west by North Palafox, on the north by Gadsden St., and on the south by Jackson St. The obelisk was dedicated in 1891 in memory of Jefferson Davis, Stephen R. Mallory, Edward Aylesworth Perry, and the Uncrowned Heroes of the Southern Confederacy. The monument was funded by the Ladies Confederate Memorial Association, and was inspired by “Appomattox,” the confederate memorial in Alexandria, Virginia. Atop the obelisk is the figure of a confederate soldier, head bowed, looking southward. At the time of the 1891 dedication, the Pensacola Daily News claimed ten-thousand people out of the eleven-thousand population attended the June ceremony in the square formerly known as Florida Park. The monument can be visited today in the park overlooking downtown Pensacola.
