Morse Diggs, Fox 5 Atlanta, July 21, 2015

The debateĀ over confederate legacy has moved from flag symbols to rock carvings.

The City of Atlanta has formally asked the governor to take a look at changing what’s on Stone Mountain.

Currently, the faces of three notablesĀ from the civil war are carved into the mountain. President Jefferson and two generals, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson.

Councilman Michael Bond suggests adding other historic figures to the mountain, such as Martin Luther King Jr. and President Carter.
