The Kennesaw Mountain corridor covers an area that is 30 miles wide and 60 miles long encompassing more than 1500 miles. While you can traverse the area in an afternoon, the breadth and depth of resources for detailed study of this area and the events which occurred here can bring a lifetime of enjoyment.
This interactive tour includes over 200 sites identified in the greater Marietta area. "Points of Interest" files for both Garmin and Tom-Tom GPS devices make the driving tour fun and easy to navigate the more than 1,500 square miles which encompassed the battles and skirmishes in north Georgia in May and June of 1864 that culminated in the battle of Kennesaw Mountain.
The tour covers points in Cherokee, Cobb, Fulton, Paulding and Bartow counties including the battles of Dallas, New Hope Church, Pickett's Mill, Kennesaw Mountain and Kolb's Farm. You may choose to visit only the Civil War related sites or include such world famous and important landmarks as the "Big Chicken."
