Photo of Hood's Texas Brigade monument

HOOD'S TEXAS BRIGADE
Erected 1910 by surviving comrades and friends.

A gray granite shaft, with hand-carved quotes by President Jefferson Davis, General Robert E. Lee, and others, is topped by the bronze figure of a Confederate soldier. The monument stands as a memorial to the members of John B. Hood's Texas Brigade Army of Northern Virginia. Principal battles, during which some 4,000 soldiers in the division died defending the South throughout the Civil War, are listed on the base. The bronze figure was executed by Pompeo Coppini.
