Scope and Contents

The Texas Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy was formed in Victoria Texas on May 25th, 1896. In their charter, they are called upon to honor the memory of those that served and fell in service and protect and mark places made historic by Southern valor. The Texas Division has been very active in fulfilling this responsibility. Many Texas county courthouses have had Confederate monuments created and commissioned by the Texas Division.

This collection contains materials documenting various Confederate monuments in Texas. Organized alphabetically by Texas county, folders contain information on who built the monument, whom it is honoring, and some pictures of the monuments.
