This color postcard features a crowd of people surrounding a tall white column with a Confederate Solider at the top. The monument is beside a large three story brick building with a green roof. Other smaller buildings and trees are behind it. The title along the top of the card reads "Aberdeen, Miss Unveiling Confederate Monument." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher information as well as indication for communications and address placement. A green one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner and is postmarked Aberdeen, Mississippi October 1, 1900.
