3. Blog to Collect Information About Woodmen of the World Monument, Greene St, Augusta, GA. This blog entry contains links to photos, article and whatever information I've been able to find about this monument. What prompted my interest was the fact that the names for the WW I dead are divided by race, while the names for the WW II dead are not divided by race.
