Biographical/Historical Note

The historian Gaines M. Foster has identified ninety-four Confederate monuments that were erected in the South by 1885 (a further 406 were added by 1912). Some of the oldest of these monuments are in Georgia, such as the pillar in downtown Athens, which was erected in 1872. Perhaps the most storied Confederate monuments in the state are in Savannah, Atlanta, and Augusta. - New Georgia Encyclopedia (Retrieved May 14, 2009)
