Anderson County Confederate Monument is under siege by the BLM movement to have it removed.  It is being spearheaded by a BLM supporter who lives in TN.  She has a petition of 700 names to remove our local monument and it will be presented to the Lawrenceburg KY City Council the evening of 762020 and the Anderson County Fiscal Court 7/7/2020.  Help stop the destruction of all our historical markers by signing today.


The Confederate Monument on the courthouse lawn in Lawrenceburg KY has stood proudly since 1894 built by the Kentucky Women's Monumental Association,. It consists of a granite figure on a pedestal, around which may be found the names of the Confederate regiments raised in Anderson County and a list of those men wounded or killed during America's tragic war of 1861-1865. The monument features an eight-foot tall figure dressed in winter coat with a rifle held vertically before him.

Lawrenceburg was the site of several skirmishes in the War for Southern Independence, leading up to the Battle of Perryville on October 8, 1862. Later in the War, a Home Guard unit was stationed in the city to attempt to quell guerrilla activity there.
