College Station, Texas, to Add Civil War Memorial to Veterans Park

The city already has eight statues to commemorate service in various wars, but none to the Civil War until now.

Some 90% of the money needed has already been raised, $72,000, and they memorial is expected to be dedicated on April 9, 2015, the 150th anniversary of Lee's surrender at Appomattox.

Today, 133 new names are going to be added to the park's Wall of Honor listing service men and women form the area.
