The Confederate Monument in the center of Yazoo City is perhaps one of the most significant memorials of its kind in the South. The inscription represents the purest distillation of the post-war Southern ethos "As at Thermopylae..." on public display in this nation. It is to the people of Yazoo City that the care of this historic memorial is entrusted and it is they who must prevail against the political winds of the day to preserve this historic monument for the future to learn from.
