Confederate Monument at Pine Hill Cemetery
Date: 1895 Size: 470x345 pixels
Ninety-eight unknown soldiers of the Confederacy were buried near this monument in Pine Hill Cemetery.  Many are believed to be Texans, patients who died at the Texas Hospital in Auburn.  Seventy-one soldiers are buried in marked graves in the cemetery.  White-gloved Agricultural and Mechanical College cadets with rifles formed an honor guard to commemorate the dead on Confederate Memorial Day in 1895, two years after the Ladies Memorial Association placed the monument there.
