Confederate Monument, Liberty, Mississippi
Erected in 1871. It is in Liberty, Mississippi, which is the county seat of Amite County. It was erected to all who died in the War of Northern Agression from Amite County.
Amite County, one of the oldest counties in Mississippi, sent one thousand of her noblest sons to the Confederate Army. In honor of them stands in the town of Liberty a Confederate monument with the names of three hundred and fifty boys who, with unfaltering courage and devotion amid the shock of battle, went to their unmarked graves with songs of their country on their lips. No names shine with more resplendent luster upon pages of American history than those written across the sides of this weather beaten slab. The devotion that is felt for this monument is characteristic of a people who have always been true to every cause to which they showed allegiance, not because of its sculptural workmanship, but because it is a stone of memory erected by loving hands under trying circumstances. It was built in 1871 during the regime of the carpetbag and scalawag. ~ Confederate Veteran, 1911
