(4.5/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
The historical location of a major Civil War event, Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park preserves the site of a battle fought between the Union and Confederate armies on June 18, 1864. Over 5,300 soldiers died during this battle, won against all odds by the vastly outnumbered Confederate forces. Designated as one of the country's historical districts in 1966, the park contains three major battlefield areas and a visitor center, where you’ll find a museum, theater, and information desk. Stop by the theater to watch short films about the battle, or walk some of the 27 km (17 mi) of interpretative hiking trails, which are lined with earthworks, cannon emplacements, and monuments dedicated to the soldiers who fought here.
