Its location away from the courthouse square long a source of controversy, Twiggs County’s confederate memorial is located on Georgia Highway 80 across from the courthouse. Russ Huffman and Tommy Fountain, with the help of the Lt. James T. Woodard SCV Camp 1399, have attempted unsuccessfully for at least a decade to have it moved to a more appropriate location.
