This is a very impressive monument at the Clayton County Courthouse. It includes a bronze soldier and sailor, two bas relief panels of battle scenes, Gettysburg Address and an eagle. The courthouse is NE of the river and business district. Extensive repair work was needed on the sailor with some work on the soldier and eagle. SUVCW members Ricky Stewart, David Lamb and Court Stahr should be commended for an enormous amount of effort on this project. Ricky Stewart is a talented artist who fabricated the hand and telescope on the sailor and did other repair work. Photos taken 6/3/21.
