To Name The Fallen

This memorial is dedicated to the memory of those brave men and women who answered their country's call to arms in wars and conflicts from the American Revolution through Desert Storm. Seven hundred thirty-four of these citizen solders from Halifax County, Virginia, made the supreme sacrifice. Their names are engraved on this memorial to ensure that they will never be forgotten by future generations.

The memorial consists of the black granite monument as its centerpiece with its engraved names and the white pre-cast concrete structure with its columns and dome.
