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.
