This postcard features a color illustration of the Washington County Courthouse with a Confederate War Monument out front in Greenville, Mississippi. The courthouse is a Gothic style building with a clock and bell tower that rises from the center of the building, curved windows and doors, and intricately carved roofline. The Confederate monument that stands to the left of the courthouse is a tall white pedestal with a soldier at the top. Trees and bushes are on the courthouse grounds and in front of the courthouse. The title of the card is printed along the bottom edge of the card. An inscription is written on the left edge of the back of the card. [see transcription field]
