Dyer County Confederate Monument

Dyer County Confederate Monument

Located on the grounds of the Dyer County Courthouse. The monument was dedicated on April 6, 1905 to coincide with the anniversary of West Tennessee's most prominent Civil War Battle, the Battle of Shiloh. The dedication drew 5,000 people to town.

Notice how the widest part of the base is a different color from the rest of the monument? At some point, the monument started to lean, so it was placed on a concrete pedistal to fix that problem
