The Florida Confederate Memorial Wall
Several thousand individuals (soldiers, sailors, marines, physicians, and chaplains) serving with Florida's Confederate units, and Floridians posted to other Confederate forces, died in combat, or expired as a result of wounds, diseases, illnesses or accidents during or soon after the War Between the States. They were of diverse races, creeds and nationalities. The aforementioned individuals were pursuing the dual, and what they believed to be honorable, causes of defending and maintaining the sovereignties of the State of Florida and the Confederate States of America.
Confederate soldiers, sailors, and marines are "veterans," as designated by an act of the U.S. Congress (Public Law 85-425: Section 410 / adopted 23 May 1958), and, therefore justifiably and legitimately deserve the same respect as all other American military veterans.
Although The Florida Confederate Memorial Wall contains only the names of those Floridians who perished in the midst of meritorious service, the continuing initiative endeavors to pay homage to all servicemembers affiliated with Florida who perfomed praiseworthy duty for the Confederacy. In light of the foregoing, the primary goals of this nonpolitical undertaking are to provide tangible, visual, educational, and solemn tributes to Florida's Confederate veterans.
