    Although McDuffie was not officially created until about nine years after the War for Southern Independence, it still boasts a Confederate Monument on the east sidewalk leading to the courthouse. The monument honors men from the area which was later to become McDuffie County, who gave their lives in defense of the high and noble ideals of the Confederate States of America.

    The monument is an obelisk which features on its front two crossed sabres, below this is inscribed "Women’s Tribute April 26, 1896."

    An inscription on the side of the monument reads:
    They Sleep the Sleep of our Noble Slain,
    Defeated yet without a Stain
    Proudly and Peacefully
