S J AFTER THA IVING .1 MISG SALE 0 in The Commercial, Union City, Tenn FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1922. A GIGANTIC MEMORIAL TO THE CONFEDERACY Stone Mountain One of the World's Wonders. Eigheen Dales from Atlanta and seven miles from Decatur, Georgia, stands this mountain of solid gran ite, the largest on the globe. One side of this mountain has a smooth surface, rising in the center to a height of one mile and tapering toward each end ono and a half miles in length. This mountain was owned by Mr. W. H. Vonable, of Atlanta. A few years ago the idea of converting tho smooth surface in to a Confederate memorial was sug gested to the U. D. C. by Mr. W. H. Tenell, an attorney of Atlanta. The idea, however, originated with Mr3. W. J. "Plane, a member of the -Atlanta Chapter of the U. D. C. Mrs. Plane, though recently having had her 94th birthday celebrated by her home chapter, is still an ardent advo cate of the speedy carrying out of this labor of love. Mr. Venable gen erously donated this beautiful moun tain side, and a liberal acreage adja cent thereto for a park, to the United Daughters of the Confederacy, pro vided they would have carved upon it as a lasting memorial, the figures of1 Gen. R. E. Lee and his horse, Traveler, surrounded by those of Jefferson Davis, Generals Gordon, Jaskson and others of our matchless leaders. The height of General Lee and Traveler as planned will be thir ty feet, and the others will be in like proportion. The work had been surveyed, and wooden markers sus pended by wires from the summit of the mountain outlined in part at least the carving to" be done. , This was in 1916, but work was suspend ed, and the U. D. C. devoted all their resources to helping win tho World War and caring for our men in serv ice. Now, however, we are emerging from that strenuous two years, and the National U. D. C., in convention at Birmingham, Ala., recently called Gutzon Borglum (the sculptor orig inally employed) from New York to confer with him in regard to again taking up the task which will; re quire eight years for its completion. Mr. Boiglum will, after finishing a N ALL Sale Opens Friday, This is 0 contract on which he is now engaged, will return to Atlanta and begin the carving of these figure3 on the moun tain side. Thi3 work is admittedly hazardous and may cost many lives. But however tragical it may prove, we can safely anticipate its comple tion within the next few years. Daughters of the Confederacy and their friends everywhere aro inter ested in this as well as all other un dertakings designed to teach and perpetuate the noble deed3 and hero ism of our soldiers who wore the gray.
