    In front of the Oconee County Courthouse stand two small monuments which memorialize local veterans who have served their community in times of war.

    The monument on the south side lists an "Honor Roll" to veterans who made the "Supreme Sacrifice." There are 20 names from World War II, 2 names from Korea, and 3 from Vietnam.

    On the north side of the courthouse lawn is the monument to Oconee County Confederate soldiers, erected by the Roberta Harris Wells Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. It reads:

    COMMEMORATING THE SELF SACRIFICE
    OF THE CONFEDERATE SOLDIER
    WHOSE VALOR IS ENGRAVED UPON
    THE HEART OF THE SOUTH
    ENDURING AS TIME, EXCITING
    AND COMPELLING THE ADMIRATION
    OF ALL NATIONS AND ALL PEOPLES
