Description: 

Jefferson's Confederate monument, as it's most often called, is a generic Southern soldier atop a tall pedestal in front of the courthouse in the Square at the center of town. It appears in 7 fictions. According to Requiem for a Nun, it was "instigated" and paid for by the United Daughters of the Confederacy (a real Southern organization) and officially unveiled on "Confederate Decoration Day" in 1900 (189). This novel refers very briefly to that day "when they unveiled the Confederate monument" (118).
