The tall monument is located in Community Clubhouse Park. A soldier on the top stands ready with his musket in hand. Below the Confederate soldier is a Battle Flag, partially furled. Under the flag are the dates "1861-1865" Below this is inscribed, "The Confederate Private Soldier". Below is a configuration of a bow ribbon with loops surrounding the four sides. Under this the inscription, "He sprang into battle line to defend his invaded country. He won marvelous victories; He suffered no discreditable defeat; he never lost fortitude in hours of disaster." On the side are two crossed cannons with a ram rod for loading the cannon. The back has three muskets crossed at the barrels and below them is inscribed, "Erected by Cordele Chapter #793 UDC 1911." To the right are crossed sabers as mentioned above the bow. On the lower level is inscribed, "Amid the Confederate lights and shadows rest upon the historic cause we detect no semblance of dishonor, no suggestions of thought or acts unworthy of the loftiest inspiration and the bravest endeavor."




The Covington Confederate Monument was unveiled April 26, 1906. All the Newton Confederate Veterans and their families were present, with several thousand enthusiastic people. The monument was erected by the joint efforts of Jefferson Lamar Camp, UCV, The Ladies Memorial Association, The Daughters of the Confederacy and local citizens.

It stands in Central Park. A soldier standing at rest is on top of the monument holding his musket in both hands. Below him are two crossed muskets and below the muskets it reads, "To the Confederate dead of Newton County their gallant herodic deeds like monumental shafts arise from out the graveyard of the past, and mark the tombs where valor lies."

While this monument is erected in memory of Confederate soldiers and the sacred cause for which they contended it is intended to commemorate the noble women whose fearless patriotism and subline lives, heroic and self-sacrificing service enhanced the holiness of that cause and prolonged the struggle for its supremacy by inspiring its champions with increased ardor and enthusiasm and gallantry in their contest. No sordid or mercenary spirit animated by those to whom this monument is erected or inspired the men who bravely fought and the women who freely suffered for it. Its final failure could not dishonor it nor did defeat estrange its devotees.

"When marble wears away, and monuments are dust, the songs that guard our soldier's clay, will still fulfil their trust."

" Throughout life a sufferer in body, mind, and spirit,
He was a signal Exemplar of Wisdom, Courage,
Fortitude, Patience, and unweaving Charity.
In the decrepitude of age, called to be Governor of the state.
He died, while in performance of the work of his Office,
and it seemed fit, that having survived parents,
Brethren, sisters, and most of the dear Companions of youth,
He should lay his dying head upon the bosom of his people.

Grave of Alexander H. Stephens

Almost since the birth of the human race, men have sought to inspire the living by perpetuating the memory of the dead. The Guards met at Liberty Hall to dedicate a monument to this great man. This man of lofty patriotism, broad humanity, profound wisdom, and ingrained honesty, who, though beyond the reach of mortal honors, still serves his people by the illustrious example he has left to them. We honor ourselves in honoring the man to the memory of the Great Commoner their best friend who was greatest in his simplicity. His life was one of public service from youth until the day of his death. At the unveiling of this monument to the memory of our beloved Alexander H. Stephens, the Guards marched to the grave of Stephens. Standing at “present arms,” the Old Guard solemnly paid honor as their commander drew away the veil from the tablet. As the veil was drawn three volleys, as a salute rang in the darkened skies. The ceremonies were closed when a lad of a dozen years blew “Taps” on his bugle. The inscription on the granite tablet is surmounted by the coat of arms of the Old Guard battalion, and reads as follows: "This tablet in a tribute from the Old Guard, of the Gate City Guard, in memory of their departed friend, Alexander Hamilton Stephens, Statesman and Patriot, Vice President of the Confederate States of America. Born, February 11, 1812. Died, March 4, 1883. Dedicated, October l9, 1913."
