The reason this is important, is the three men embossed on the face of arguably the most famous landmark in the great state of Georgia are icons for what is widely considered the darkest period in our nation’s history. A war that claimed the lives of approximately 620,000 Americans (www.civilwar.org). A war that divided our great nation, and pitted brother against brother. A war that was waged in the name of slavery, racism, and oppression; The polar opposites of the founding principles of this great nation.
Additionally, the thousands of men and women from Georgia that have given their lives and livelihoods in the name of freedom for all Americans deserve a majestic reminder befitting their service and sacrifice. There is no better place than the face of Stone Mountain.

Thank you for your time and your support,
- McCartney Forde I

      This carving is insensitive to many people, it's like having a graving of Hitler in a mountain

      All of the men represented in the carving were slave owners. Stone Mountain used to be a site for KKK activities and cross burnings. It's in bad taste and form to keep it up there and I don't think it's appropriate to honor slave owners no matter what war they fought and the confederates lost anyway so what is it really celebrating?

      White southerners, it's time to stop celebrating our ancestors' fight to preserve an institution of human suffering. Because that's what it truly was.

      It is glorifying a racist past and honoring those who supported it.
