Confederate Veterans Monument - Jeffersonville, GA 

UPDATE!! We're very pleased and thankful to report that the Twiggs County Confederate monument is now located on the courthouse lawn where it always should have been. Many thanks to the Sidney Lanier Chapter, United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC), the Georgia UDC, BG Edward Dorr Tracey Camp SCV, The Camp of the Unknown Soldier, Georgia Division SCV, Clark Memorials and others for making this happen. There are still plans to repair the broken rifle on the soldier, but for now the monument is located in a safe place and no longer in danger of collapse.

The Confederate Monument to Twiggs County Confederate Veterans (and all Confederate Veterans) was previously located in an inappropriate location next to a fried chicken eatery. 

See the 2003  photographs below  as well as the names of Twiggs veterans and a message from Russ Huffman below.

Customers of the fried chicken eatery frequently use the pedestal as a picnic table and leave their trash and food scraps on the monument.

You probably recognize most of the last names on this list above. Look through the Jeffersonville phonebook and you'll see many of them. These are names of soldiers who served with the Confederate States of America during the War for Southern Independence. These men are honored on the monument that now stands across the railroad tracks from the Twiggs County Courthouse.

These brave men, many of whom are your ancestors, marched off to war leaving their wives, children, families, and possessions. Some were gone from home for four years or more. Some returned maimed or crippled for the rest of their life. Some never made it back to Georgia soil. They suffered and died to protect their homeland and to preserve a free and independent republic, a republic of sovereign states that would control their own destiny, a republic where an all-powerful, central, federal government did not exist. These men were much like our present-day soldiers who have left all behind to go to Iraq and defend our home and principles. The politics of their government are inconsequential. They were called to duty and they answered. The Monument to Confederate Soldiers honors the men, the individuals that did their duty and marched off to war. It does not represent any government or ideology. These men, like all veterans, deserve to be honored.

The monument has been in the same location since 1911. At that time there were no businesses encroaching on the site, but over time, the monument's location has become unsuitable. Vandals have done their work on the statue, and weeds grow in the cracks between the stones. Just across the tracks is a newly- renovated Courthouse with ample grounds to relocate the memorial to its rightful place of honor. All it takes is a "go-ahead" from the Twiggs County Commissioners. Not one penny of tax money will be used. The relocation cost will be borne solely by contributions.

Don't your ancestors deserve better than this? Call your County Commissioners (numbers above) and demand that the monument be allowed on the Courthouse grounds. Sign a petition to that effect. Show up at the Commissioners office in mass when the next meeting concerning the monument is held. Help beautify downtown Jeffersonville by making right this disgrace we have endured for so long.

Please sign the petition at Napa Auto Parts in Jeffersonville or call Russ Huffman at 478-945-3031. You may also call Russ if you see an ancestor on this list and would like more information concerning his service record or if you want information on joining the Sons of Confederate Veterans.  ---Russ Huffman
