55. Confederate Memorial
Versailles City Cemetery (Woodford County)
White marble marker on limestone and concrete base, circa 1877

This uniquely shaped monument, constructed circa 1877, marks the center of a circle of Confederate graves in Versailles City Cemetery.

During the War, Versailles was occupied at various times by both Union and Confederate troops, and the Union presence involved African American troops stationed throughout the town. This drew strong protests and threats of violence from the citizens, most of whom maintained allegiance to the Confederacy.
