What You Need To Know About The “Appomattox” Confederate Statue

The "Appomattox" is a seven-foot bronze statue erected in 1889 in honor of the dead Confederate soldiers from Alexandria. Located at the intersection of South Washington and Prince Streets, the statue depicts a lone Confederate soldier, who stands facing down with his arms folded. He is holding a wide-brimmed hat in his right hand and has a somber expression on his face. The names of over one hundred men who died during the war are engraved on the granite base of the monument. The statue was commissioned by the R.E.Lee Camp of Confederate Veterans and was created by sculptor M. Caspar Buberl. The finished statue was so well-received that a huge number of visitors flocked the town of Alexandria during the dedication ceremony in May 1889. Soon, replicas of the statue began popping up throughout the south and the R.E. Lee Camp applied for and received a copyright for the statuary design in 1892. Foreseeing the controversy that would arise over the monument, the Confederate Veterans petitioned the Virginia House of Delegates in the same year to have it protected by state law. However, there've been ongoing efforts to move the statue to another location.
