(2011) Enlarge Memory Hill Cemetery. General George Doles (4th GA Vol. Infantry, Baldwin Blues) (May 14, 1830-June 2, 1864) This “diamond blue granite” monument was unveiled July 25, 1894 at the annual reunion of the 4th GA Regiment. Doles served gallantly in battles in Virginia. At Spotsylvania, in 1864, his brigade suffered very high casualties. Doles was criticized for his actions by some newspapers. At the battle of Cold Harbor, perhaps thinking of the criticism, he exposed himself excessively to enemy fire. He was shot through the chest and died the following day

The Soldiers’ Monument was erected in 1868. It is one of the first such Confederate monuments in Georgia. It was erected to commemorate Confederate dead in general and, more specifically, to mark the graves of unknown Confederate soldiers buried here who had died in Brown Hospital in Milledgeville in 1864
