- Confederate Memorial Gates in Mayfield
- The Confederate Memorial Gates in Mayfield are historical monuments that represent the entrance to Maplewood Cemetery in Mayfield, Kentucky. The monuments were the second monument in Mayfield the United Daughters of the Confederacy established, the first being the Confederate Memorial in Mayfield in downtown Mayfield. The Gates were the third choice for monuments, chosen mostly due to their relative low cost. The UDC meant for them to not only be a monument to those residents of Graves county who served the Confederate States of America, but were also intended to be a civic improvement. (read more...)
