Southern Unionist Memorials In Confederate States

note: I thought I’d edit this to reflect what prompted it. Josh has a degree in history, so I figured I’d better have my sources lined up.

No matter how tenuous, I’m trying to find a monument to Union loyalists, or Unionists, in each Confederate state. This is what I’ve come up with so far.

North Carolina


1st and 3rd Mississippi Memorial

These are the ones that are stretching it, but I’m including any way.
A Union Loyalist in Louisiana

Dual Destinies in Winston, Alabama

It’s a stretch to call this a monument, but North Carolina.

These North Carolina Unionists at least have a plywood marker where they were publicly hanged.

You might have to visit a museum to find much about Unionists in Arkansas

and other interesting links found while digging around…

I originally included this one for Florida, however Robert Moore pointed out, this is a monument for Union soldiers.
