The Confederate monument, on the right side of the image is a tall monument with a soldier standing on top of an obelisk, and angel seated at the base of the obelisk above a mausoleum-like vault in a Gothic style. Trees are seen behind the monument and flower bushes are depicted on the capital lawn around the monument. The title of the card is printed along the top of the image.
