African American Civil War Soldiers Monument by Preston Jackson

Commissioned by the City of Decatur in 2008, the work was designed and created by renowned artist, Preston Jackson. Jackson created several concepts for the statue and allowed the citizens of Decatur to vote to select the final design.

It recognizes the efforts of an extraordinary group of soldiers who fought and died in defense of emancipation and so that we as Americans may live. The monument stands more than 10 feet tall and is believed to be only the second monument in the United States honoring African-American soldiers who fought in the Civil War.
