Signs of Spring at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park

Marietta, GA - Team East headed over to Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park today to brush up on some history and enjoy the sunshine. Back in 1864, a battle was fought here from June 19 to July 2 and over 5,350 soldiers were killed. Historic earthworks, cannon emplacements, and monuments are preserved here. These days, this park is filled with joggers, dog-walkers, families as well as history buffs. We took a 5.5 mile hike and enjoyed learning about the Atlanta Campaign as well as soaking in the early signs of springs on a beautiful Georgian day.

All the best,

Agata and Jason
