This is a List of Confederate Monuments and Memorials dedicated to the memory of those who served and died in service to the Confederate States during the American Civil War.

Many Confederate Monuments were erected in the former Confederate States and border states in the decades following the Civil War, in many instances by the United Daughters of the Confederacy, Ladies Memorial Associations, and other memorial organizations. Other Confederate Monuments are located on Civil War Battlefields.

New Confederate Monuments continue to be proposed, and some have been built in recent years. In Arizona, a Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp Erected a Confederate Monument in Phoenix in 1999 and Confederate heritage groups dedicated a Confederate Memorial in Sierra Vista in 2010. The Delaware Confederate Monument was unveiled in 2007 in Georgetown, Delaware. In South Carolina in 2010, the Sons of Confederate Veterans have sought to Erect a Monument to mark the 150th anniversary of the passage of the Ordinance of Secession in December 1860, but the cities of Charleston and North Charleston have refused them permission.
