Reese-Hyman Post 96 American Legion and the Burkhalter Chapter NNSDAR, would like to announce plans to relocate the World War I Monument to the Courthouse grounds in Warrenton, GA.
Shortly after the end of World War 1, and no effort was started by the school children of Warren County under the direction of the Warrenton Civic Club to erect a monument commemorating the seven men and two women whose lives were lost in The Great War. Over the course of two years the school children of Warren County raised money, mostly pennies, and in 1920 the monument was erected in front of the old Warrenton Senior High High School on Academy Street.
The monument will be permanently relocated to the Courthouse grounds and once again history will be made by teaching today's Warren County schoolchildren an important part of our past and asking to to give their pennies to support the project.
The names of everyone who contributes will be listed in the local newspapers, as it was years ago and they will become part of our history once again
"In Sacred Memory of the Men and Women of Warren County who made the Supreme Sacrifice" WORLD WAR 1.
