West Point Monument


"Sober Reminder"

This tall monument, found in the West Point Cemetery, is one of the one African-American Civil War monuments in the South. After a long, fraught building process, the monument was finally completed in 1920, in honor of all the African-American soldiers that lost their lives. The soldier depicted at the monument's top is Sergeant William H. Carney, the son of two emancipated slaves. The monument bears an inscription in his honor - and all the other soldiers that died - at the base.
