Atlanta Ladies Memorial Association Formed

The Atlanta Ladies Memorial Association was formed to help honor living and deceased Confederate veterans. The association would undertake many projects in the following decades, including creation of a large section of Oakland Cemetery for interment of Confederate veterans. One of their most memorable projects was the marble Atlanta Lion memorial to the unknown Confederate dead placed in Oakland Cemetery in 1894.
