This 40-foot granite monument was the culmination of efforts by the Monroe Chapter of the Daughters of the Confederacy to memorialize Confederate soldiers from Union County. Atop the three-tier granite foundation rests the base of the obelisk. The tall shaft is topped with a polished sphere. All four sides of the base are inscribed. The east face of the base features a Confederate flag, while the east and west faces depict crossed rifles and crossed cavalry sabers, respectively.
