On the way home, we stopped at the fascinating place, not far away from Atlanta, Stone Mountain. If we knew that this place existed, we would make sure to reserve more time there; a little frightening tram ride up, great mountain views, quick hike down, nice natural trails, supposedly awesome laser show late at night ( we couldn't stay :( ). Very busy and entertaining place, place dedicated to the Confederacy heroes.
A couple of hundred miles up north different story; Gettysburg, dedicated to the Union site and calling it victorious. Sad in the face of such a waste of lives and unnecessary spill of brotherly blood.
