Hank O'Neal, with Clark Memorials based in Macon, Ga., sprays bleach to clean the Confederate Soldiers Monument, Wednesday, Aug. 24, 2011, in downtown Augusta, Ga. The base of the monument is 25 feet of Georgia granite, from which rises a 47-foot obelisk of Italian marble. It was designed by Von Gunden of Philadelphia and carved in Carrara, Italy.  It was dedicated on Oct. 31, 1878.

Unpublished

I believe Theodore Markwalter, here in Augusta, carved it or did some of the carving. His name is on the base.
