I am so glad that this monument is still there. If people would read their history, the war wasn't only about slavery. As another traveler said, educate people instead of hiding the past.

I think seeing and discussing the past beats covering it up and ignoring it any day. How do we learn and educate by hiding everything someone objects to?

Wonderful memorial to those who fought in the various wars and lost their lives. A grave reminder that our freedom is not free, many have paid the price. We were humbled and very touched by the memorial.

This is simply a statue of a confederate soldier, a memorial to all from Dyer County who fought in the war. A dcent setting in the courthouse square. A good place to reflect on the losses of war.

The monument is a part of the court house square and shares a part of the local history. To really learn about some of the culture of the past, you need to see it from both sides.
