Joseph Bond (1815-1859)

Alfred Colquitt Joseph Bond was the most successful planter and cotton farmer in the state of Georgia.  He was killed in 1859 by a former Plantation overseer he had fired for mistreating a slave.  The Bond monument  has suffered over the years from a tornado in 1954, and from vandals; there were originally surrounded by four other figures on the lower level.  The monument was sculptured in Italy, and was carved out of Carrara marble.
