Arizona Confederate Memorial Restoration


SAVE OUR ARIZONA CONFEDERATE MEMORIAL!

The Arizona Confederate Memorial was installed in the Wesley Bolin Plaza at the Capitol in Phoenix by the Arizona Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1961 as part of the centennial of the War for Southern Independence.  In the past 55 years, the memorial is deteriorating and, if it is not repaired, the state will remove it.  In such a case, we will likely never see it again!

 

The Borderland Veterans Camp 2201 of Douglas has taken on the project to restore the memorial.  They have accepted a bid of $10,350.00 for the work and have been actively raising funds for the project.  The contractor will start work when one-half of the amount is paid.   Camp 2201 has raised more than half the amount .  More money has been pledged and fundraising continues. 

 

Camp 2201 has placed an advertisement in The Confederate Veteran which will run in the March/April issue.  We ask for your contribution, be it large or small.  Help us preserve this memorial to Arizona's Confederate soldiers!
