In September 2007, the Texas Historical Commission (THC) established the Texas Civil War Monuments Fund to continue the work begun in 1961 by the Texas Civil War Centennial Commission and the Texas State Historical Survey Committee (the THC’s predecessor), to honor the contributions and sacrifices of Texas forces during the Civil War. Since 2008 the THC with support of private donations and historic preservation planners from across the country has placed five new monuments.
Help us maintain the momentum and continue the tradition of commemoration by supporting the Texas Civil War Monuments Fund. We are currently accepting donations for our next planned monument for the Battle of Glorieta Pass, New Mexico. For more information on this project or to donate to the fund please contact the THC military sites program coordinator or the Friends of the Texas Historical Commission.
