Lion of Atlanta
Original name: Monument to Unknown Confederate Dead Lion of Atlanta
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Memorial to over 3000 unknown Confederate soldiers buried in Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta. Based on the "Lion of Lucerne" in Switzerland, the memorial of a mortally wounded lion lying on a Confederate flag was erected in the Confederate section in 1894. It was carved from a single block of Georgia marble, the largest block of marble ever quarried, up to that time.
