Confederate Monument Replaced by Lynching Marker

Existing Title: Sons Of The Confederacy Memorial

Existing location: 33.957115, -83.989703

City Lawrenceville GA

Country: United States

This marker has been meaningfully replaced by:

Correct Title: Charles Hale Lynching Marker

Correct Description: Charles Hale's horrific treatment by a Lawrenceville mob, April 7-8, 1911

Wayspot already has the correct picture, as primary since November 2022. Agents already consider it the lynching marker.

Explanation: This ironic transformation is very culturally relevant for the area. These changes are worded tactfully for the circumstances.
