To the Men of Leon County Who Perished in the Civil War
Old Capitol grounds
In April of 1881 a monument was erected on the capitol grounds. It was dedicated "To rescue from oblivion and perpetuate in the memory of succeeding generations the heroic patriotism of the men of Leon County who perished in the Civil War of 1861-1865, this monument is raised by their country women."
This monument is inscribed with the battles in which Leon County troops participated, including battles in Florida, Virginia, and in the western theater. The monument carries the name of the manufacturer, which is T. Delahunty, Laurel Hill, Philadelphia.
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.
