Phase II is started, it will be broken up into smaller stages,
depending which construction will start first. The end result is
to make Confederate Memorial Park, a serene/reverent place to visit
that teaches and honors the sacrifices of those men/women/children,
military/civilian, of all races, who were imprisoned and who died
in the Pt. Lookout POW Camp.
Confederate Memorial Park will consist of a POW
Statue to honor the prisoners of Point Lookout Prison and landscaping
consisting of the CSA state flags / trees / flowers, memorial benches,
and plaques. Near the center of the circle will fly
atop a 50' pole, the Confederate Battle Flag - the flag
these men and women fought for, was imprisoned for and died for.

Currently, we estimate that the park will require
approximately $100,000 to construct. The estimate could rise as
construction begins, and we will need your help.
The walkway leading to the entrance will be lined
with the three CSA national flags, the Bonnie Blue Flag, the National
Flag of Scotland, and the Point Lookout POW
flag. On each side of
the entrance will be placed Maryland’s state and St. Mary’s
County flags. In front of these, two stones from the original monument
Pt. Lookout Cemetery will be placed and inscribed with the meaning
of Confederate Memorial Park. The St. Mary's County flag was donated
to CMP by Commissioner Larry Jarboe and this flag will fly
to honor all the military/civilian men/women/children of St. Mary's
County who were imprisoned in Point Lookout as American POW Veterans.
