Are there Confederate monuments in Gwinnett County?
Confedeate Veterans of Gwinnett Monument (Old Gwinnett County Courthouse): This monument was dedicated in 1993 by the Sons of Confederate Veterans. Perhaps anticipating today's flag controversies, it includes this quote by Winston Churchill: "Any people with contempt for their heritage have lost faith in themselves and no nation can long survive without pride in its traditions."
There is a monument to the Confederate veterans of Gwinnett County in downtown Lawrenceville. The monument was installed in 1993 by the Sons of Confederate Veterans and is the only monument dedicated exclusively to the Confederacy in the county.
There is also a portion of Gwinnett County’s Fallen Heroes Memorial that honors veterans of the Civil War. The names of Gwinnett County residents who died in the Civil War are listed on three stone panels under the heading “The War Between the States.” The memorial does not specify whether each fallen soldier fought for the Union or the Confederacy.
