Memorial Wall on Dahlonega Campus

In 1982 the then-North Georgia College Alumni Council erected a Memorial to honor former students who were killed in the service of our country during time of war. As interest in the project increased, the concept was expanded to include a marker to record the names of students who died while enrolled.

Dahlonega Architect Steve Gallant designed the memorial for the Alumni Council. North Georgia College personnel prepared the site. The stones were cut, finished, and erected under the direction of Mr. Joe Findley, President, Elberton Granite and Finishing Works, Elberton, Georgia. The University of North Georgia Plant Operations, Landscape and Grounds department maintain the Memorial Wall.

On April 30, 1983, Dr. John H. Owen, President, of then-North Georgia College, and General William J. Livsey, Class of 1952, dedicated this Memorial.

In 1985, Mr. Robert L. Owens, Chairman of the Fine Arts Department, North Georgia College was commissioned to sculpture an eagle to be cast in bronze and added to the Memorial site. Mr. Chad Colley, Class of 1966, dedicated this eagle, “Freedom’s Vigil.”

This monument stands as a silent Memorial to those former students who died for their country to preserve the light of freedom, and to the memory of those enrolled students whose life was cut short. The names of those individuals are listed below. Wreaths and flowers are placed at Memorial Wall by contributors to the UNG Eagle Fund.
