Rodger: I live within about 5 mile from there and have hiked all the trails there and it you do it right you can go there on the busiest day and not see many people if you want to enjoy the solitude of the park..... I'm not real big into the Confederacy and it's history and there are nice Museums there to visit or not. It's a place for everyone and to some degree it is now in a more diverse area of east Atlanta, "black-ish" so-to-speak, and I feel very comfortable being there... I don't know why I feel compelled to say this but yes, I am white and have been living very near there since 1974 when I moved there. For many years I use to stop by there for my evening hike to the top if it was not slippery with rain and I used to be there early each weekend morning to enjoy the view 52 weekends a year when possible.... The carving is the carving and every summer they put on a laser show over the carving and it has been many decades since I have seen one so I can't comment on it. At the start of the 1 mile walk-up-trail there is an area set aside of the trail many, many years ago showing the flags there have been flown there going back in time. I know it's there but it's nothing that grabs my attention and if some find it offensive "I" would have no problem having all those flags moved into an existing Museum in the park that you would have to go out of your way to see or not see if you chose not to.!!! History is HISTORY and you can't change what has happened in the past BUT you can learn fro it and hopefully not repeat those times that were bad for some or all... I'm not a world wide traveler but I have been to some historic places in South America, North America and Europe "along" with studying about lots of other places in the world going back in time to discover what grabbed people's attention at each point in history starting at the 20th century and going back as far as we are able to find records... For me, it's important NOT to forget how HUMANITY got to where we are at today but sadly much of history HAS-BEEN destroyed by those wanting it's events and views erased which we should NEVER DO.!!!
