Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park

This National Battlefield Park commemorates the Civil War battle fought here and the 1864 Atlanta Campaign.

June 27, 1864, dawned hot and muggy. Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman's 100,000-man Union army faced Gen. Joseph E. Johnston's 65,000 Confederates entrenched along an eight mile front from Kennesaw Mountain south. After an early morning artillery bombardment, a wave of Union solders surged forward across this field and the battle began.

Today the National Park Service maintains this park where Union and Confederate soldiers battled—from the feint attack here against Big Kennesaw Mountain to the major assaults on Pigeon Hill and Cheatham Hill. As you visit Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, help preserve its earthworks and historic landscape for future generations.
