Believed to be the city's oldest outdoor art sculpture, the Confederate Memorial was originally located at Old City Park, formerly Sullivan Park, which was located less than a half mile away on S. Ervay. Its original installation at the Park in 1896 was an all-day event attended by 400 Confederate & 65 Union veterans. The monument was moved to its present location in Pioneer Cemetery in 1961 when construction began on R. L. Thornton Frwy.
It consists of a 60-foot central obelisk bearing the likeness of Old Tice on one side, a Confederate Soldier standing atop the monument & four statues: Albert Sidney Johnston at one corner, General Robert E. Lee at another corner, General Stonewall Jackson on the third corner & Confederate President Jefferson Davis on the fourth corner.
