The purpose of these statutes is to celebrate white supremacy in the present. Many historians have proven, Confederate memorials celebrated slavery, the South as a slave society, and white supremacy in general.

The most striking Confederate memorial column this reviewer has ever seen in the south. The tribute to all of the lost soldiers and sailors is stunningly beautiful, with rich carvings and figures. Stop and see this part of history while you still can.

The statue is very tall and the work on the statue is very intricate and astounding. It pays tribute to the soldiers and sailors of the Confederate States. If you love American history, take time to see this beautiful statue.

The craftsmanship it took to create this thing is unreal. there are at least four "faces" to the monument and each one is as intricately carved and assembled as the other. Also an easy stop and look attraction in Montgomery. Right outside the Capitol.
