      Confederate monument work to begin soon
      BY SCOTT BUTKI
      Staff Writer

      Sculpting work will soon begin on a monument to Confederate
      soldiers at the South Mountain State Battlefield.

      The monument at Fox's Gap will honor Confederate soldiers from
      North Carolina who fought in the Battle of South Mountain on Sept.
      14, 1862.

      Rex Hovey, president of the Living History Association of
      Mecklenburg, N.C., said Wednesday he has been working since 1997
      to get a monument funded and built.

      Gary Casteel of Four Winds Studio in Gettysburg, Pa., said he is
      expected to start work within the next few weeks on a sculpture to
      be placed on the black granite monument. The work will take about
      a year.
