National Register of Historic Places

Located on the Greene County Courthouse lawn, this memorial was erected at a cost of $2000 by the women of Greene County at a time when Confederate memorial-building was at its zenith. The “women” were members of the Confederate Memorial Association and the United Daughters of the Confederacy. The dedication in August 1898 was nearly left out of the local paper due to news of the Spanish-American War.
