WWI Memorial, Winston-Salem
This plaque of copper or bronze, aged and oxidized to green over the years, sits mounted to a low granite pylon. The granite pylon has a slightly scalloped top, and a flagpole, most likely part of the original commemoration, sits just behind the marker. Listing the names of those fallen, the plaque commemorates the men from Forsyth County who died during World War I.
