42. Confederate Monument
Anderson County Courthouse lawn, Lawrenceburg
Granite figure and pedestal, 1894

Around the pedestal of this monument may be found the names of the Confederate regiments raised in Anderson County and a list of those men wounded or killed during the war. Unveiled in 1894, the monument features an eight-foot tall figure dressed in winter coat with a rifle held vertically before him.

Lawrenceburg was the site of several Civil War skirmishes, just before the Battle of Perryville in October 1862. Later in the War, a Home Guard unit was stationed in the city to attempt to quell guerrilla activity there.
