List of Confederate monuments and memorials in Georgia facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Note: This is a sublist of List of Confederate monuments and memorials from the Georgia section.

This is a list of Confederate monuments and memorials in Georgia that were established as public displays and symbols of the Confederate States of America (CSA), Confederate leaders, or Confederate soldiers of the American Civil War. Part of the commemoration of the American Civil War, these symbols include monuments and statues, flags, holidays and other observances, and the names of schools, roads, parks, bridges, counties, cities, lakes, dams, military bases, and other public works.

This list does not include items which are largely historic in nature such as historic markers or battlefield parks if they were not established to honor the Confederacy. Nor does it include figures connected with the origins of the Civil War or white supremacy, but not with the Confederacy.

Georgia has a statute making it difficult to remove Confederate monuments because it is unlawful to damage, relocate or remove any memorials honoring any military personnel of the state or USA or the Confederate States of America.

As of 24 June  2020 (2020 -06-24), there are at least 201 public spaces with Confederate monuments in Georgia.

  • Statue of John Brown Gordon, Georgia State Capitol grounds (1907).

  • Statue of Benjamin Harvey Hill, Confederate Senator, Georgia State Capitol.
  • Statue of Joe Brown and his wife. "Brown was the Confederate governor of Georgia and after the war served as [U.S.] senator. He also was an ardent secessionist. After the war, Brown served briefly as chief justice of the Georgia Supreme Court and authored an opinion upholding the state's ban on interracial marriage that described such marriages as 'productive of evil, and evil only, without any corresponding good.'... That opinion was cited in several briefs in the Supreme Court's recent decision on gay marriage as an example of how government has consistently erred in defining marriage."
  • William Ambrose Wright marker
    Plaque honoring William Ambrose Wright

    • Oakland Cemetery
      • Confederate Obelisk, inscribed "Our Confederate Dead 1873", in the Confederate section of the cemetery. Made of Stone Mountain granite, it is the tallest object in the Cemetery. In 2019 the city decided to add e marker contextualizing its continued placement on state-owned property.
      • Lion of the Confederacy, also known as the Lion of Atlanta, inscribed "Unknown Confederate Dead". Created to memorialize "the lost cause".... "The Lion is actually a locally made copy of the Lion of Lucerne, a memorial to hundreds of Swiss Guards who died in the service of a much different but equally lost cause: defending the royal family in Paris during the French Revolution." Mark Twain called it (the Lion of Lucerne) "the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world." "Carved by T. M. Brady, who owned the Georgia Marble Finishing Works in Canton." It is surrounded by "the remains of 3,000 unknown Confederate dead.... It was commissioned by the Atlanta Ladies Memorial Association and dedicated on Confederate Memorial Day in 1894." In 2019 the city decided to add marker contextualizing its continued placement on state-owned property. Its intricately carved face was smashed by rioters during the first week of June 2020.
    • Peachtree Battle Avenue Monument (1935), a stone-engraved memorial commemorating the Battle of Peachtree Creek (1864). Because state law prohibits its removal, to provide "context", in 2019 a panel was added saying: "[The monument] describes the United States after the civil war as a perfected nation. This ignores the segregation and disenfranchisement of African Americans and others that still existed in 1935."
    • Peace Monument (1911), Allen George Newman, sculptor, inside the 14th Street gate of Piedmont Park. Features a winged goddess declaring "Cease Firing – Peace Is Proclaimed," to a Confederate soldier holding a rifle. Defaced by protestors after the Charlottesville Unite the Right rally, August 13, 2017. A committee set up by then-Mayor Kasim Reed in 2017 recommended it be removed. Since state law prohibits this, the decision was made in 2019 to add a "contextual" panel, pointing out that the monument ignores the 200,000 African Americans that have served in the U.S. Army.
    • Rhodes Hall, formerly a private mansion, features a set of stained-glass windows entitled "The Rise and Fall of the Confederacy."
    • Sidney Lanier Monument (1914), a stele and bust honoring Sidney Lanier, a former Confederate soldier and the "Poet of the Confederacy".

McPherson on the spot at which he was killed by Confederate forces on the same day (July 22, 1864, during the Battle of Atlanta).
    • Westview Cemetery Memorial. Marks the site of the Battle of Ezra Church. A soldier on an obelisk, above two small stone cannons and cannonballs. Inscribed "Nation shall not lift sword against nation" (Isaiah 2:4). Confederate flag flown, along with U.S. and Georgia flags.
    • Eternal Flame of the Confederacy Monument (1939), a pre-Civil War gas streetlamp that was part of the Atlanta premiere of the film Gone with the Wind, now at the Atlanta History Center. Its plaque reads:
      The Eternal Flame of the Confederacy
      Lighted during the "Gone with the Wind" festivities, December 14, 1939 by the Old Guard Battalion of the Gate City Guard.
The Gate City Guard was "a Confederate-era city militia". The streetlamp was originally located at the corner of Alabama and Whitehall (now Peachtree) Streets, and was moved several times prior to its installation in Underground Atlanta. Redevelopment of that area led the city to want to remove it. Since it was valued at less than $500, the Georgia law controlling historic monuments did not apply. The Atlanta History Center purchased the streetlamp for $10.

Kinney explained, "General Johnston, in command of an army vastly inferior in numbers to General Sherman's army, had to use his brains more than his sword; hence I made the sword subservient to the brain."
    • Memorial plaque at Johnston Headquarters, Huff House
  • Decatur: DeKalb County Confederate Monument. Obelisk located behind Old DeKalb County Courthouse on Decatur Square. The monument has been defaced several times. A petition is calling for its removal. According to the DeKalb County Commission, part of the problem is that no one wants it. "The county has spent months trying to find takers for the monument. Officials purchased advertisements and cold called museums and parks." Removed in 2020 following George Floyd protests.

  • Elberton:
    • "Dutchy" (dedicated 1898; removed 1900; placed on display in Elberton 1982). Wanting to promote its granite industry and honor the Lost Cause, Elberton commissioned an Italian immigrant who "had clearly never seen a Confederate soldier" to sculpt a 3,000 lb (1,400 kg) granite monument. Unveiled in 1898, the sculpture had a cartoonish face, bulbous eyes, and appeared to be wearing a Union Army uniform. Nicknamed "Dutchy" because it looked like a cross between a Pennsylvania Dutchman and a hippopotamus, the monument was pulled down and buried where it fell in the town square in 1900. The sculpture was exhumed in 1982, run through a local car wash, and then placed on display in the Elberton Granite Museum, where it remains.
