     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.

Woodrow Wilson, later to become 27th President of the United States, lived in this Manse of the First Presbyterian Church of which his father, Dr. Joseph R. Wilson, was pastor from 1858 to 1870. Wilson was born in Staunton, Va., in 1856 and he later attended the University of Virginia Law School, graduating in 1881 having previously graduated from Princeton University. He practiced law in Atlanta and in 1885 was married in the Manse of the Savannah Independent Presbyterian Church to Ellen Louise Axson of Rome, Ga. He later studied political science at Johns Hopkins and taught at Bryn Mawr, Johns Hopkins and Wesleyan University in MIddletown, Conn. He was called to Princeton as professor of jurisprudence and political economy in 1890 and became President of Princeton in 1902. He was elected Governor of New Jersey in 1910 and President of the United States in 1912, being re-elected in 1916.

The Whitfield County World War I Memorial was dedicated on July 4, 1924, and relocated and rededicated on November 11, 2017.

The Memorial comprises a rectangular bronze plaque affixed to a rough-hewn granite slab with a polished front face. The plaque, which features the DAR symbol at top, lists in alphabetical order, without rank, the names of 19 men from the county who died in service. Sponsored by the Governor Milledge Chapter of the DAR, the memorial was dedicated on July 4, 1924, at the old post office on Hamilton Street in Dalton, Georgia. The American Legion spearheaded the 2017 campaign to relocate the memorial from the old post office to the grounds of the Whitfield County Courthouse, where other memorials are gathered. The memorial was rededicated at this new location on November 11, 2017.

The inscription on the plaque reads:

 

APRIL 1917 -- NOVEMBER 1918

Erected in 1958 near Good Hope Church on Ga. Highway 83, it is inscribed, “Moina Michael, educator, patriot, and internationally known as ‘The Poppy Lady,’ was born near here August 15, 1869. A granite boulder marks her birthplace. She received her early education at Braswell Academy and at Martin Institute, Jefferson, Georgia. Her first teaching was in a log cabin on her father’s plantation and in an old store at Good Hope. Miss Michael’s inspiration for the Flanders Field Poppy as the memorial emblem came to her November 9, 1918, just before Armistice Day, while she was serving with the YMCA in New York. From the sale of poppies made by disabled veterans in hospitals, millions of dollars are realized annually for their aid. Miss Michael died May 10, 1944, and is buried in Monroe, Ga.
