MONCKS CORNER - A group is collecting names for a monument to Confederate soldiers from Berkeley County.
Theyre hoping for an inside display, maybe in a museum setting, sometime after the first of the year. A location has not been announced.
The Sons of Confederate Veterans General Ellison Capers Camp No. 1212 has been saving for the monument for more than 10 years, said Nathan Daniel of Pineville, a member who is collecting names.
The monument will be about 4½ feet wide and 5 feet tall. It will cost about $2,500, plus $3 a letter to inscribe the names.
Theyve collected about 230 names so far, Daniel said. The names must be accompanied by some evidence that they actually served in the Confederate army, although the group offers to help with documentation.
