I am so glad that this monument is still there. If people would read their history, the war wasn't only about slavery. As another traveler said, educate people instead of hiding the past.

I think seeing and discussing the past beats covering it up and ignoring it any day. How do we learn and educate by hiding everything someone objects to?

Wonderful memorial to those who fought in the various wars and lost their lives. A grave reminder that our freedom is not free, many have paid the price. We were humbled and very touched by the memorial.

This is simply a statue of a confederate soldier, a memorial to all from Dyer County who fought in the war. A dcent setting in the courthouse square. A good place to reflect on the losses of war.

I like seeing history preserved. This monument has been in Dyer County for several years. I live away now and when I return we always take time to get a picture

The monument is a part of the court house square and shares a part of the local history. To really learn about some of the culture of the past, you need to see it from both sides.

There are multiple monuments in the square. The confederate one is informative and gives information on all the battles men in the area served in. There were no battles on the actual site. One monument is for all veterans and was a project by en...More

Just to realize the dedication that people have in trying to preserve a way of life, a culture and their forefathers makes one stop and stand in awe of such good craftsmanship and purpose in the monument.
