Statue of Confederate Soldier

Confederate Monument 1
This bronze statue of a Confederate soldier holding his rifle on a four-sided granite pedestal between two cannons. The monument was erected in 1902 at a cost of $2,200 and was dedicated to the 2,416 soldiers of Cumberland County that fought in the Civil War.

It was originally located in the center of St. James Square, at the present day intersection of Grove, Green, Rowan, and Ramsey Streets. It was moved to the northeast side of the square in 1951 to accommodate the roads and in 2002 it was again relocated to the intersection of Morganton and Fort Bragg Roads.
