It is a large globe, made of bronze and copper. It is split in half as representation of the war fought in European and Pacific thearters. The globe itself sits on Georgia granite and is twenty feet high. On the inside of the globe, where you can walk through, there are eight inscribed panels on either side of the globe with the names of the 527 Chatham County citizens who lost their life in World War II. On either side of the opening there are purple heart medals and the inscription below that is on either side of the globe.
