Long Description:
In 1899, Charles C. Hemming, a wealthy Colorado banker and Confederate veteran, donated this 62-foot tall Confederate monument to the City of Jacksonville, along with enough money to buy a whole city block as its showcase. Jacksonville was the city of Hemming's birth. Today, the city block housing the monument, in the center of downtown Jacksonville, is called Hemming Plaza. The Confederate monument was one of the few structures that survived Jacksonville's Great Fire of 1901.
