This marble panel was laying on the ground in front of the west side of the statue. I am unaware where the Veterans Hospital Annex was located but perhaps @alan polk might know?

I’m afraid I don’t know that answer. Perhaps @Tompre might know? It’s an interesting question. Surely someone here knows.

The Confederate Soldiers annex was built by the UDC using riverboat cruises and concerts. It opened in 1901 and in 1918 while 5 CS veterans were still there it burned. Below is a post card that show both buildings. There is nothing left of the original hospital or annex and is schedule for demolition.
