The Batesville Confederate Monument is located at the southeast corner of Main and Broad Streets in Batesville, Arkansas. It is a square monument, about 20 feet (6.1 m) in height, divided into four stages, and built out of local limestone. The first three-stage have a base trim element, and are unadorned except for inscriptions. The divider between the first and second stages is a projecting shelf, while that above the second and third stages resembles a turreted battlement. The monument was placed in 1907 by local chapters of the United Daughters of the Confederacy.[2]

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