Carroll County Confederate Monument (Fairmount, Virginia)

Description:

Cast in white bronze, a lone soldier stands in parade rest atop a plinth which is decorated with a bas-relief of Robert E. Lee. The monument, now located outside Carroll County Courthouse, was erected in 1907. It was originally situated in the middle of Main Street but was relocated to its current location in 1930 due to the widening of Main Street. Having deteriorated over the years, the monument was restored with funds from the Sons of Confederate Veterans Jubal Early Camp #1691. It was re-erected on February 28, 2007 and rededicated on April 28, 2007.
