It's such a small archway entrance with a statue on the top, at one side of the square. There is description on both side of the column. One of the canons is missing. It should be very important statue but it's not a "must see"...More

There's missing pieces, the fountains on them don't work, and it doesn't really represent Denton anymore. This statue would be better placed in a confederate graveyard or museum. It's time Denton works toward enhancing their art and cultural landmarks. There's really not that much to...More

Tasteful memorial to fallen soldiers. I was surprised to see it but I'm glad Denton has chosen for it to remain. The civil war happened and destroying history is not the answer.

This memorial is to the confederate soldiers that served in the civil war. It is very old and has very unique carvings on it. It helps us remember the war and that we should never have any type of slavery again.

I'm glad the statute is still there considering the movement to shame all Confederate soldiers. It would be nice if the missing stone cannon ball would be replaced.

I'm a history buff, so I enjoyed seeing it, but it was a tad disappointing. It was smaller than expected and the inscription could be better.

With the plague of Political Correctness spreading like a virulent flu, monuments that dare to display the dreaded "C-word" (Confederate) are under attack. The Denton Confederate Soldier Monument stands where it has since 1918 but has been vandalized more than once and you may see...More

Years ago, when I first got to Denton, I was a bit shocked about this, until I learned about the history behind it. The majority of men who died fighting for the Confederate army out of Denton were conscribed, ergo, drafted. They did not want...More
