List of monuments and memorials of the Confederate States of America
Many Confederate monuments were erected in the former Confederate states and border states in the decades following the Civil War, in many instances by the United Daughters of the Confederacy, Ladies Memorial Associations, and other memorial organizations. Other Confederate monuments are located on Civil War battlefields.
New Confederate monuments continue to be proposed, and some have been built in recent years. In Arizona, a Sons of Confederate Veterans camp erected a Confederate monument in Phoenix in 1999 and Confederate heritage groups dedicated a Confederate memorial in Sierra Vista in 2010. The Delaware Confederate Monument was unveiled in 2007 in Georgetown, Delaware. In South Carolina in 2010, the Sons of Confederate Veterans have sought to erect a monument to mark the 150th anniversary of the passage of the Ordinance of Secession in December 1860, but the cities of Charleston and North Charleston have refused them permission.

Confederate Monuments Today
Today, Confederate flags and monuments are in question by many Americans as the issue of whether they should remain standing arises.
Are Confederate Monuments Memorials?
The word "monument" is meant for someone (or something) cherished because of a relevant event in the current period. In the article The Meaning of Confederate Monuments, published by the New York Times on May 15, 2017, the discussion of Confederate monuments and their purpose in American society today is discussed. Art philosopher Arthur Danto is also included in this article and breaks down the difference between a monument and a memorial. In one segment of the piece, Danto said, "We erect monuments so that we shall always remember and build memorials so that we shall never forget." He also claims taking down the monuments eliminates the opportunity to learn of our past, "to educate Americans what this nation used to be to prevent reversion of an Antebellum South".
- Confederate Memorial Monument, also known as the "Monument to Confederate Soldiers and Sailors", on the grounds of the Alabama State Capitol, Montgomery, Alabama. Former CSA President Jefferson Davis laid the cornerstone in 1886, but it was not completed until 1898. Funding for the monument included $20,000 in the form of two grants from the state legislature, $10,000 contributed by the Ladies Memorial Association of Alabama, $6,755 from the Historical and Monumental Association of Alabama that was formed in 1865 to support the erection of this monument, and $5,000 from politicians. Gorda Doud designed the monument, the statues were created by Alexander Doyle.

New Orleans, Louisiana Today (2017)
In New Orleans, Louisiana, city officials declared the monuments to be "a nuisance" months after nine black churchgoers were killed in a "racially-motivated" massacre in Charleston, S.C. On May 4, 2017, the Los Angeles Times published A Monumental Challenge: What to do about the Statues of the Heroes of Dixie - and Defenders of Slavery. The New Orleans City Council ordered the removal of statues of Confederate President Jefferson Davis; General Robert E. Lee, who resigned his U.S Army commission at the time of Virginia's secession and accepted command of the state's military forces; General Pierre G.T. Beauregard, who oversaw the Battle of Fort Sumter; and the Battle of Liberty Place Monument. Court challenges were unsucessful. The workers who removed the monuments were dressed in bullet-proof vests, helmets, and masks to conceal their identities because of concerns about their safety; according to Mayor Landrieu, "The original firm we’d hired to remove the monuments backed out after receiving death threats and having one of his cars set ablaze." "The city said it was weighing where to display the monuments so they could be 'placed in their proper historical context from a dark period of American history.'". On May 19, 2017, the Monumental Task Committee, an organization that maintains monuments and plaques across the city, commented on the removal of the statues: "Mayor Landrieu and the City Council have stripped New Orleans of nationally recognized historic landmarks. With the removal of four of our century-plus aged landmarks, at 299 years old, New Orleans now heads in to our Tricentennial more divided and less historic." Landrieu replied on the same day: "These statues are not just stone and metal. They are not just innocent remembrances of a benign history. These monuments purposefully celebrate a fictional, sanitized Confederacy; ignoring the death, ignoring the enslavement, and the terror that it actually stood for.”

Richmond, Virginia Today (2017)
Mayor Levar Stonry  of Charlottesville commented on the matter while talking about the Robert E. Lee statue saying, "At the end of the day, the way those statues stand at the moment is a default endorsement of a shameful past that divided the nation. And to me, it defies my mission of one Richmond. You, I want to be a city that is tolerant, inclusive, and embraces its diversity, and those statues without contest do not do that". There have also been cases of white supremacists and nationalists groups as well vouching for the permanency of the statues. On May 15, 2017, Richard Spencer led a white nationalist group around the Robert E. Lee stature. They rallies in support of the statues for, "Confederacy is what represents us". Leiutenant Governor Ralph Northam commented on the appearance of nationalists and supremacists groups, saying via email, "These actions are totally unacceptable. These people are racists. They don't represent Virginian values. I condemn their action and beliefs. I call on all Virginians who are involved in efforts to advocate for or against Virginia's history to act responsibly and honorably."
