The monument, constructed in 1914 was to be a symbol of unity after the Civil War.
The capsule is a sealed copper box that was found under a concrete slab. It was inscribed with “In honor of the soldiers and sailors of the Confederacy.”
The time capsule will be unsealed privately in the next few days and the content inside will be revealed at an upcoming fundraiser for the Missouri Civil War Museum.
