The catafalque's black cloth covering was cut into very small pieces, put under the seal of the NC Monumental Association, attached to a large, handsome certificate and given to each one who gave $9.25 for the construction of the Confederate Monument in Raleigh. I have the one from my great Grandfather JP Leach dated April 9, 1894. It is signed by Mrs. Armistead Jones and Miss Neggio(?) Iredell Cooper. (?)
