Hanover County Confederate Monument Documents

 

Hanover Courthouse and Confederate Monument

 

On Thursday, August 27, 1914, local dignitaries, women’s groups and citizens gathered on the Courthouse Green at Hanover to dedicate the Hanover County Confederate Monument. The names of known soldiers from Hanover County who served during the Civil War had been inscribed on bronze plaques on each side of the obelisk. Col. Robert E. Lee Jr. delivered the dedication address for the new monument.

 

The Hanover County Confederate Monument collection presents images from the document collection of the Pamunkey Regional Library, relating to the planning and construction of the monument. The images consist of correspondence, sketches, blueprints, notes, and other ephemera.

 

On Saturday, August 23 at 2:00 p.m., the Hanover County Sesquecentennial Committee will hold a re-dedication for Hanover County Confederate Monument on the Courthouse Green at 13182 Hanover Courthouse Road.  Please see the Hanover County Historical Society's web site for more information.
