Long Description:
The monument is a bronze sculpture of a family of four. The mother is seated and is wearing a long dress. The daughter is leaning against her mother's shoulder crying. The young son holding a drum and drumsticks is standing to his mother's right. The father wearing a Confederate uniform stands in front of his wife with their hands clasped. The scene is that of the father giving his final goodbye prior to leaving for the War.

The plaque below the sculpture is inscribed:

To The Confederate Women Of Arkansas
1861 - 1865

"Whose Pious Ministrations To Our Wounded Soldiers
Soothed The Last Hours Of Those Who Died For The
Object Of Their Tenderest Love; Whose Domestic
Labors Contributed Much To Supply The Wants Of
Our Defenders In The Field; Whose Jealous Faith
In Our Cause Shone A Guilding Star, Undimmed By The
Darkest Clouds Of War; Whose Fortitude Sustained
Them Under All The Privations To Which They Were
Subjected; And Whose Patriotism Will Teach Their
Sons To Emulate The Deeds Of Their Sires."
