Add to TripRemove
This is the first memorial to honor unknown Confederate soldiers in the South, erected by local citizens just a few years after the end of the Civil War. These particular soldiers were led by General Nathan Bedford Forrest and were killed in a raid on the occupying Federal troops in Union City. The Confederates attacked the town's railroad junction after destroying railroad tracks in several counties, attempting to disrupt union supply lines.
