Long Description:

This monument is located in front of the South Carolina State House! In July, 2000, after a long debate the Confederate battle flag was removed from atop the capitol building and placed along side this monument! However now some want it removed completely which I think is un-realistic and an un-educated request!

Date Installed or Dedicated: 05/13/1879

Name of Government Entity or Private Organization that built the monument: The Women of South Carolina

Union, Confederate or Other Monument: Confederate
