Long Description:
It was erected in 1903 by the J. Crepps Wickliffe Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, the state's most active monument-raising organization. The zinc figure of a Confederate soldier holding a rifle with both hands in front of him rests atop a multi-sectioned, ornamental pedestal with a limestone base. Directly beneath the figure is a relief portrait of Gen. Robert E. Lee.

?Monument text reads:
"This monument is erected to the memory of the 67 brave men buried here, who lost their lives in the service of the Confederate Government ~ "Lord God of Hosts be with us yet, Lest we forget, Lest we forget."
"Marble tells not of their valors' worth nameless they rest in the quiet earth."
"We care not whence they came, Dear in their lifeless clay; Whether unknown or known to fame, Their cause and country still the same, they died and wore the gray."
