This is a recent addition to Veterans Park, erected in 2008. It was erected by the Jacob Summerlin Camp of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, and is a granite obelisk that sits on a a circular multi-color brickwork platform designed as a depiction of the Southern Cross of Honor.
The obelisk carries a number of quotes on its base, and the obelisk itself is engraved with numerous names. It is not at all clear from this monument what these names represent--whether they are Confederate veterans or the names of current members of the local camp of the SCV. More word on that later.
The Florida Public Archaeology Network is dedicated to the protection of cultural resources, both on land and underwater, and to involving the public in the study of their past.
