The statue of General Mouton in front of the Lafayette Parish courthouse, Lafayette, LA, erected by the Louisiana Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy on the 58th anniversary of his death.

(Note the historical error on the side of the statue's base pictured above. The Battle of Pittsburg Landing is another name for the Battle of Shiloh, Tennessee, which was fought in April 1862, not April 1863.)
