The Confederate soldier monument has stood on the Bentonville square since 1908.

The Arkansas Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, which own the Confederate soldier monument on the Bentonville square, has reached an agreement with the Benton County Historical Society to relocate the statue to a private park that will be named after James H. Berry. The process of moving the monument, which was placed on the square in 1908, will begin in August.
