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.

Many Confederate Monuments are listed on the "National Register of Historic Places." Confederate Monuments found in the state of Texas are listed here:

  • Confederate Soldiers Monument, Texas State Capitol, Austin; erected beginning 1903.
  • Confederate War Memorial, Dallas. Originally erected in City Park in 1897, but relocated to Pioneer Park Cemetery in 1961 due to highway construction.
  • Confederate Soldiers' Monument, Denton: dedicated June 3, 1918, located on the south lawn of the Denton County Courthouse.
  • Confederate Memorial of the Wind: under construction since 2013 in Orange

After the Civil War, the United Confederate Veterans and United Daughters of the Confederacy were very active in helping the old Civil War Veterans and began to erect monuments in their honor. Below is a listing of Confederate Monuments that are located in Texas by County. There are more than fifty Civil War statues and memorials located in Texas and hundreds throughout the South.  The United Confederate Veterans of Texas and The United Daughters of the Confederacy usually sponsored the construction of the Confederate monuments and statues, with the most popular design being the traditional statue of a confederate soldier who stands at parade rest on summits overlooking parks, cemeteries, and courthouse lawns throughout the state of Texas.  When the Confederate statues in Texas were being erected, may communities struggled for years raising the funds for the confederate monument to honor the veterans. Most of the Confederate Statues in Texas are over 100 years old and the quality of workmanship is incredible.  There are links to the different counties in Texas and we are trying to include photographs of monuments in every county along with photos of Confederate Veterans Reunions. If you have any photos or information that you would like to contribute please email us at info@texasconfederateveterans.com These statues are truly a treasure and piece of Texas History.
