A Guide to Confederate Monuments in South Carolina
"Passing the Silent Cup"

Robert S. Seigler

A complete listing and description of all Confederate monuments within the Palmetto State

Since the command for secession was first given, South Carolina was pivotal in the formation and cause of the Confederacy. In A Guide to Confederate Monuments in South Carolina, Robert S. Seigler invites the reader to rediscover the history that first split a nation as he weaves his way through each city in South Carolina in search of all Confederate monuments.

Beginning with the Abbeville County monument and ending with the York County monument, Seigler spans the multiple locales of South Carolina, including all Confederate monuments located on courthouse lawns, town squares, cemeteries, churchyards, public parks, and markers commemorating military combatants and civilian participants of the state. Seigler provides a literal transcription of the engraving for each entry as well as a historical snippet of the events and personages influential for the monument, the material used to construct the memorial, and
directions to the location of the site.

Complete with photographic images of the more prominent statues and structures and an index of the monument, this compendium offers readers the chance to traverse the history of the Palmetto State's wartime experiences.

Robert S. Seigler was a historian with the South Carolina Department of Archives and History.
