This very striking momument was dedicated on June 3, 1916, by the Brooksville Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, in honor of Confederate Soldiers. It has a very nice statue of a private Confederate soldier as its pediment, and was manufactured by the McNeel Marble Company of Marietta, Georgia. This soldier is well uniformed and equipped, and has a blanket roll across his shoulder and a wide brimmed hat. The monument sits facing southwest on the southeast corner of the grounds of the historic Hernando County Courthouse in Brooksville.
The Florida Public Archaeology Network is dedicated to the protection of cultural resources, both on land and underwater, and to involving the public in the study of their past.
