The Georgia Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans, and the Gen. Clement A. Evans Camp #64 file a Lawsuit Against the City of Waycross and the City Commissioners individually for violation of Official Code of Georgia Annotated § 50-3-1.
Press Release:

On April 1, 2021, three (3) members of the City Commission of the City of Waycross, Georgia ( Norman E. Davis, John Threat, and Marian C. Solomon-Gaines) voted to remove the Confederate Monument from its historic location in Phoenix Park in Waycross, Georgia in violation of O.C.G.A. § 50-3-1. The Confederate Veterans’ Monument in Phoenix Park was erected in 1910 to the Confederate Veterans of Ware County and the City of Waycross.

Apparently pandering to the “cancel culture” mob was more important than obeying Georgia law. The three (3) City Commissioners will be in court and spending taxpayers’ money to defend their illegal action.

On April 29, 2021, The Georgia Division Sons of Confederate Veterans and Gen. Clement A. Evans Camp #64 filed a lawsuit and a request for a Temporary Restraining Order. The lawsuit names the three (3) City Commissioners individually and in their official capacity as defendants for violation of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated § 50-3-1.

The monument honoring the Confederate veterans is located in Phoenix Park off Pendleton and Mary Street in Waycross, Georgia. The Monument made entirely of marble was erected in 1910 to commemorate the Confederate dead in the Southern War for Independence (1861-1865). On top of the Monument is a soldier standing with his rifle on his shoulder. On the base of the Monument is inscribed:

1861 TO 1865
CONFEDERATE DEAD

ETERNAL RIGHT THROUGH
ALL THINGS FAIL. CAN
NEVER BE MADE WRONG.

“MANY OF WHOM GAVE
ALL, AND ALL OF WHOM
GAVE MUCH.”

THE IMPARTIAL ENLIGHTED
VERDICT OF MANKIND WILL
VINDICATE THE RECTITUDE
OF OUR CONDUCT,
AND HE WHO KNOWS THE
HEARTS OF MEN, WILL JUDGE
THE SINCERITY WITH WHICH
WE HAVE LABORED PRESERVE
THE GOVERNMENT OF OUR
FATHERS IN ITS SPIRIT.

– JEFFERSON DAVIS –
