The Arkadelphia Confederate Monument is located on the grounds of the Clark County Courthouse in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. The sculpture, which depicts a Confederate Army soldier, was carved from Italian marble, and is mounted on a base of Georgia marble. It was designed and executed by R. P. Phillips in 1911, with funding from the local chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy.[2]

The monument was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.[1]
