Long Description:

In the early 1900's, during an era in the South when great tributes were bestowed upon the lost cause of the Confederacy, many in North Carolina felt that the women of the Confederacy should also be honored.

When the state legislature failed to appropriate funds to build a Women of the Confederacy Monument a Confederate Veteran, Colonel Ashley Horne, offered the state $10,000 to construct the monument. It was the wish of Colonel Horne to recognize the suffering and hardship faced by women during this tragic period in our nation's history.

The monument was dedicated June 10, 1914. This is one of several Confederate Monuments on the grounds of State Capitol in Raleigh.
