A monument to Confederate 'glory'
Stone Mountain just east of Atlanta, Georgia is an enormous granite dome, five miles around at the base, circled by sheer gray cliffs, which rise out of the Georgia forest.
The mountain looms as large in history as it does in the Georgia landscape.
Carved on the side of the mountain is an enormous bas-relief sculpture of three heroes of the Confederacy, Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee and Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, along with their horses.
