On the grounds of the Texas Capitol is a memorial to the Texas soldiers and sailors who were killed in The Civil War. The text on the monument goes on and on about state's rights as guaranteed in the US Constitution, and how these brave men took up arms against their homeland to assert these rights. The right to own slaves is not mentioned on the plaque. But the memorial does have a great tableau of statues. The figures do more for the memory of those who fought than any differences those sides might have had - differences both sides took with them to their graves.
