A new historic marker has joined the Confederate monument at the DeKalb County, Georgia, historic courthouse. This additional history about the erecting of Confederate monuments provides valuable context.

Well, I'll be. I used to live there and once went to a Jesse Jackson news conference in front of that monument...I don't think any of us had ever read what it was about. Just a random granite obelisk on a public square. Love this response to a reactionary state legislature.
