This World War I Memorial in the Greene Street median in downtown Augusta pays honors to veterans of The Great War with the following inscription:
"The men of Richmond County, of every creed and color, who served at their country's call that aggression and lawless force should not dominate the world."
The reverse side of the monument says: What stands if freedom fall? - Kipling 1914
The tall, slender obelisk topped by a figure of an eagle was erected in 1940 by the Richmond County Association.
