    This type of project should be created at Stone Mountain Park. Where the KKK beat and hanged slaves.
    The monument of confederate generals is carved into the mountain and can’t be removed. You can even take a tour of plantations.
    This type of display would fit right in with the confederate generals on Stone Mountain. Sure talks are underway.
    We plan to visit Alabama this summer.
