Arizona Confederate Memorial Restoration


The Arizona Confederate Memorial was installed at 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 "American Civil War Centennial," as set forth in Presidential Proclamation 3382, dated December 7, 1960, by President Dwight Eisenhower.

In the past half century the memorial has deteriorated and if not repaired, the state will remove it.  If this happens, we will likely never see it again!

The Borderland Veterans Camp 2201 of Douglas has taken on the project to restore the memorial.  They are actively raising funds and seeking an architect and contractor to scope and plan the restoration, in accordance with state guidelines.  Camp 2201 continues to raise funds and seek financial pledges.

Help Arizona preserve this memorial to Arizona's Confederate soldiers and tribute to America's most tragic and devastating conflict.
