Long Description:
Unveiled on April 26, 1912 The Confederate Monument was first located at the intersection of Hancock and Wilkinson St. across from courthouse and post office. It was later moved to S. Jefferson St. across from the Georgia Military College gates where the fountain was no longer used.
On the front is "CSA" and the furled battle flag with a broken shaft. Under the lion's head is a covered bowl. The soldier is standing with a gun. His heroism in the presence of the conquering foe was equaled only by his generosity to his fallen enemy. Reading around the monument, starting in the back it reads: "1861"; To the memory of the Confederate soldier who’s game is as imperishable as the everlasting hills, who’s courage is as unrivaled. Sing the dawn of civilization who’s name shines in undying glory to the pages of history this monument is lovingly erected by the Robert E. Lee Chapter Daughters of the Confederacy of Milledgeville, Georgia. Unconquerable patriotism and – self-sacrifice rendered, adopted the effort of his enemies. After his flag had folded forever, to destroy his proud inheritance."
