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.

OKLAHOMA Civil War Monuments

Oklahoma fought as part of the Confederacy in the Civil War and traces of this history still survive in the state's war monuments. The Fort Gibson National Cemetery was established in 1868 as a burial place for Union troops, but Confederate soldiers remained in their battlefield graves as the Union did not consider them U.S. citizens when they died.

The first Confederate monuments date from the early years of the 20th century, according to William B. Lees of the University of West Florida, and were often erected by veterans associations. Erected in 1913, the Confederate monument in the grounds of the Cherokee National Capitol is the earliest example of this kind of monument. The location of the 1863 Battle of Honey Springs is preserved by the Oklahoma Historical Society and you can follow six walking trails marked with interpretative signs that tell the story of the battle.

OKLAHOMA Senate Bill 970 was approved by the Senate in 2015, and remains alive this legislative session.
