(10-02) Enlarge  Close-up The Lion of Atlanta - memorial to unknown Confederate dead. Inspired by the Lion of Lucerne, the monument weighs 30,000 pounds and is carved from the largest block of marble ever quarried in America when it was dedicated in 1894. The figure represents a lion that has received its death wound, and in his agony he is grasping and attempting to draw towards him the battle flag of the Confederacy
