First erected in 1896 in memory of Elias Bowsky, 3rd Bat. Co. E, 45th Mississippi Infantry, by his brother George, this twenty-foot-tall monument was deeded to the Sylvester Gwin Camp U.C.V. in 1924, and now serves as a memorial for the Confederate soldiers who died and were once buried at Whitworth College.
