Confederate Memorial Monument
The Confederate Monument is located in the very center of Forsyth Park at the intersection of Bull and Gwinnett Streets, having been placed there in 1879. This monument was designed by Robert Reid and depicts a military figure of the Civil War era.

Although the lone figure of a proud yet beaten soldier stands atop this monument, it is truly a memorial to the hundreds of thousands of soldiers who gave their lives for the lost cause of the Confederate States.

A decade after the War Between the States, women of the former Confederate states formed memorial associations in order to take responsibility for the decent and permanent interment of slain Confederate soldiers in cemeteries, where possible, and institutionalized annual memorial services, which consisted of decorating the graves with flowers.
