Silent Sam
Silent Sam stands in the Upper Quad of North Campus in memory of students who served in the Confederate Army during the Civil War. It was given by the United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1909. Silent Sam is silent because he carries no ammunition and cannot fire his gun. He has also been used as a gathering place for discussions about race relations on campus.
