Many Arkansas county courthouse lawns feature monuments commemorating historic events. Perhaps the most common are monuments dedicated to Confederate soldiers. In 1910, this Confederate monument was dedicated in the county seat of Lake Village (Chicot County). The monument inscription reads, “To the Confederate soldiers of Chicot County, the record of whose sublime sacrifice and undying devotion is the proud heritage of a loyal posterity.” It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.
