Memorials to North Carolina’s Patriots of ’61 – Reidsville, Rockingham County

Via Bernhard

Reidsville’s Confederate Monument, in the center of Main Street, [and] 26 feet high was carved in Italy. In 1860, Rockingham [County]

had 1,581 voters. But it sent 11 companies to the Confederacy, totaling over 1,700 men. Many more, of course, went as individuals

in other companies. (A New Geography, Rockingham County, Bill Sharpe, Sharpe Publishing, 1954, page 423)
