The monument in honor of the Santa Catarina people who died in the Paraguayan War was inaugurated in 1876 at Praça XV in the city of Florianópolis, the capital of the state of Santa Catarina. The work was intended to be named the “Commemorative Column,” but it became known as the monument to the 51 Santa Catarina natives who died in the Paraguayan War (1864-1870).
