This chapter considers what the authors call community monuments. These monuments are located in cemeteries and public places to honor local soldier dead or the Confederate soldier, regiment, or commander. The development of the Lost Cause narrative can be traced by the inscriptions on these elaborate outdoor sculptures. Not included in this category, and discussed in a later chapter, are monuments that mark and commemorate hallowed grounds such as battlefields.

Keywords:   Florida, Civil War, community, monument, Confederate, outdoor sculpture, hallowed ground, battlefield, cemeteries
