CONFEDERATE WAR MEMORIAL


CITY OF ST. AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA

CONDITION AND RECOMMENDATIONS


PREPARED BY HISTORIC PROPERTY ASSOCIATES

September 30, 1992


GENERAL DESCRIPTION: The memorial is a stuccoed, coquina shell-
stone obelisk. It is surrounded by a series of slightly tapered,
cast concrete posts topped by cannon balls and connected by a low
iron chain.

CONDITION: The shaft and associated marble tablets are in fairly
good condition. There is some mildew and mold on the north side.
The surrounding raised masonry platform is in good condition
although some weeds are starting to grow in the cracks.
The posts are in fairly good condition, with some minor cracking
noted. Some rusting was noted on the chains, but is not serious.
The three posts on the west side are topped by plastic
reproduction cannon balls. These are most inappropriate.

RECOMMENDATIONS:

1. Remove mold and mildew with a solution in the proportions of
one (1) pint of sodium hypochlorite (household bleach), one (1)
cup of trisodium phosphate (such as Spic & Span), and one (1)
gallon of clean water. Apply with soft natural bristle brushes.
Flush with copious amounts of clean water.

2. Apply a systemic herbicide to weeds in platform.

3. Replace plastic cannon balls with more appropriate
reproductions.

4. Patch cracking in concrete posts with an acrylic-fortified
grout. Match finish color with original.
