Map: Atlanta streets named for the Confederacy

UPDATE (Oct. 3, 2018): Three Atlanta street names in Grant Park have been officially renamed: Confederate Avenue is now United Avenue; East Confederate Avenue is now United Avenue S.E.; and Confederate Court is now Trestletree Court.

In 2017, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed appointed a group of historians and civic leaders to study what to do with the city's Confederate memorials. The group — called the Advisory Committee on City of Atlanta Street Names and Monuments Associated with the Confederacy — recommended removing two monuments and changing several street names.

The committee report identified 34 city streets possibly memorializing the Confederacy. Some street names would need further study to understand their context. The committee recommended a process for deciding which street names might get changed but recommended that some names get changed immediately.

In the map below, streets in green were once named for Confederate figures but have been renamed. Streets in red and orange are ones identified by the committee. Streets in red are the ones that the committee recommends renaming immediately.
