On November 4, 1914, the John Tyler Morgan Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) placed a memorial for Buttram in the spot where he fell and was buried. The monument reads, “A.J. BUTTRAM, CONFEDERATE SOLDIER, KILLED HERE APR. 23, 1865, DURING CROXTON’S RAID—ERECTED BY VETERANS AND THEIR DESCENDANTS.” Behind it, an American flag stands tall. In 2015, the Major General Patrick R. Cleburne Chapter of UDC erected a new marker in front of the fading original monument at a re-dedication ceremony.
So, if you’re a Civil War history buff or just curious, you can add Munford to your list of places to visit. If you take that Munford/Coldwater exit, turn right from I-20 East or left from I-20 West, then turn right where that road dead ends, and the memorial will be on the left as you come to the stop sign.
