     A portion is dedicated to Gwinnett residents who gave their lives during World War I. Gwinnett's Fallen Heroes Memorial pays tribute to all Gwinnett residents who died in the line of duty in military or public safety service.

     From native Americans "who were the first to love this land," to the most recent casualties, the memorial honors about 700 individuals, organized by categories of service. Their names, in random order and without rank, are carved on 13 black granite markers, which are nine feet tall and weigh almost four tons each. A central pedestal features a Gwinnett firefighter's bronze sculpture of an eagle carrying a rose.
