Confederate Monument In Jonesville, South Carolina

On a recent journey I took the time to stop over at the small Southern town of Jonesville in Union County and visit the Confederate monument there.

The 15 foot obelisk monument was erected by the United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1907 in memory of the Confederate soldier. 

The front of the monument reads simply: "To The Confederate Dead Of Union District."

A Confederate Army of Northern Virginia pattern battle flag flies behind it on a 12 foot pole out of respect for the Southern dead.  

I hope y'all enjoyed this post and as always have a wonderful Dixie day, y'all!
