An E-mail (9-14-12 time 2:15PM) from Richard Martin, Executive Director, DeKalb County Visitors Bureau states::

""In 1909 the Federal Government offered a number of old cannons to local communities providing that they paid the freight from the federal arsenal at Watertown, Massachusetts.

The monument was quickly erected and dedicated on Memorial Day, March 30, 1909.
To answer your question it is not a Civil War Memorial.""
