    Nueces “Treue der Union” Monument – Near the Comfort high school campus, this monument recalls Civil War hostilities that wracked the nation. Predominantly German settlers of Comfort were openly sympathetic with the Union cause. Friction developed with Confederate forces, and some 65 men led by Fritz Tegener determined to leave area and go to Mexico. The group was surprised and attacked by mounted Confederate soldiers on west bank of Nueces River about 20 miles from Fort Clark. Nineteen settlers were killed and nine wounded. Confederate losses were two killed and 18 wounded. The nine wounded settlers were captured and executed a few hours after battle. The monument commemorates the Unionists killed in this tragic episode of a violent era. It is one of only six National Cemeteries permitted to fly the U.S. flag at half-staff in perpetuity.
