This carving is just awesome.....you look at it and it is hard to believe anyone could work under these conditions.....it is part of the history of our country and worth the visit...I was a little surprised at the size of it-somehow thought it would be larger!

Crazy Horse will be bigger when completed but this is the larger than Mt. Rushmore. The quality of the carving is 5 Star! I just can't stand the whole Civil War history truth & I have to wrap my head around what this about - I choose to make it about the men that died, not the men on the... More

Memorial carving of the Confederate leaders. Very clean and be part of the outdoors. I would recommend to go on a sunny day rather than a rainy day. Also pack sunscreen for walking/running around.

Stone mountain (not far from Atlanta) sits like a HUGE bread loaf upon its plain, which climbs to over 800 feet (ish) above the ground. Strikingly; carved into the face are three mounted confederate generals, to become the largest carving of its kind in the world. For this alone, is good reason to visit Stone mountain. However, there is more... More

So beautiful and such an important piece of American history. There was a nearby visitors center with food and souvenirs that was lovely and the staff was friendly. The trip to the top of the mountain was worth it and a lot of fun. Well worth a visit!

Really nice carvings and a really nice park the view of Stone mountain from the bottom is really great from here! Please be aware that no places are open after 5pm we hoped to get a drink after hiking up to the top by the trail.

Traveled with my 5 and 11 year old. Great place to hang out for the day and teach a little history! Kids loved hiking to the top of the mountain. Bring sneakers workout clothes and plenty of water!

The confederate memorial carving is truly a work of art. Carved into the face of Stone Mountain, you would never believe that it is bigger than Mount Rushmore. You can see it from a distance, or take the cable car up to the mountain. The trip up and down gets you close to the carving. If you are in Atlanta,... More

I try to go here at least once a year should I be in Atlanta and it is very worth it. While they change the show from year to year they still maintain some of the classics and I still get chills during the show.

Yes. Its confederate generals. The Civil War happened. They weren't war criminals at the time. Look at it as history and art rather than a political statement.
