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
Alabama
Georgia
Kentucky*
Kentucky

Texas
Mississippi
Virginia

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…

A car knocks over a statute in NC…
Individual Memorials…

Podcast from Arkansas

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

    The First Mississippi Mounted Rifles were the only all white unit from Mississippi that I have located so far. There were several pro union outfits who fought a guerilla war against the Confederacy. No monument to them yet.

    That is some find, Leo. Thank you for taking the time to include it here. I was only able to get about 2/3rds of the way through it tonight, but I’m grateful you took the time to add this to my post. Thank you very much.
