Description:
This category is for monuments and memorials erected to honor those who fought in the American Civil War of 1861 to 1865. Photos are required for new waymarks and visits to existing waymarks. At least one of the photos must be a tight shot of the entire monument, top to bottom, taken from the front. Additional photos are welcome. Click on "show additional information" below to review photo and naming requirements prior to submitting waymark
Expanded Description:

Following the end of the Civil War in 1865 a number of monuments were erected to honor those who fought and/or died in the war.

In the North, many monuments were installed shortly after the war, either by individual states, counties or members of companies and battalions who fought in the war.

In the South, in many cases, it was almost impossible to erect Confederate memorials or monuments. The Confederate States of America had been "the enemy" and the Reconstruction governments would not permit them. Regardless, the economy of the South had been destroyed by four years of war and funds weren't available for monuments. In the late 1800's and early 1900's, a movement began in the South to create permanent memorials and monuments to Southern soldiers who fought in the War Between the States. Today, most state capitols and a substantial number of counties in the South have installed monuments to accompany those already built in the North. (Even California and Oregon have Civil War monuments.)

Many states, both North and South have built monuments at major battlefields as well.

This category will accept most Civil War Monuments or Memorials as long as it is not a memorial to an individual.

Instructions for Posting a American Civil War Monuments and Memorials Waymark:

1) Please give the basic name of the memorial or monument you are recording. Something like "Confederate Soldier's Memorial, Atlanta, Georgia" or "Civil War Monument, Boston, Massachusetts". These are memorials, so simple, basic titles are appropriate. The city and state must be in the title.

Titles should be factual and must contain the monument name and the city it is located in only. Often, a webpage can be found on memorials and monuments that provides the correct and true name of a monument. Historic societies are good sources for information as well. We encourage such research. Waymark titles that contain anything else but the actual monument name and the city where it is located will be declined by the group.

2) Civil War monuments and memorials must be general in nature. This category isn't designed for memorials to individual soldiers or officers. Waymarks should be those memorials placed to honor soldiers of a particular state, county or military unit or the Union or Confederate Armies as a whole.

3) Waymarks must be accompanied by at least one photo taken by the person who has visited the monument with the purpose of submitting a new waymark. This should be a clean photo, i.e. no GPS in the shot and must show the entire monument, top to bottom, from the front of the monument. Daytime photos only. Old vacation photos or scans from books or magazines or the Internet are not permitted.

4) If the memorial or monument contains detailed inscriptions, please take a close up photo or photos of the inscription or inscriptions and post. Copy the text from the marker and include it in the waymark long description.  Enter the text in the format and text arrangement as it on the monument.  Long lists of names do not need to be entered however other text on the monument should be entered in the long description.

5) Proper GPS coordinate are mandatory and directions on reaching the memorial or monument will be appreciated.

6) The date the monument was erected must be noted. (Most memorials and monuments are dated somewhere [often on the rear] or such information can be found on the Internet.) Only in cases where the monument is truly undated may you enter an estimated date.

7) The government entity or private organization that placed the monument should be noted (if such information is available). Again, this can often be found on the actual structure.

8) Please indicate whether this is a monument or memorial to The Union, The Confederacy or a general Civil War monument.

9) Additional information on the monument or memorial is encouraged. The Internet or local historic societies or museums can also be a good source of information on monuments.

Please note: Private monuments designed to promote racial disharmony or those in poor taste will not be permitted in this category.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:

To log a visit, a waymarker must visit the monument or memorial in person and post a photo. Personal observations and comments will be appreciated.
