Civil War 150th Anniversary Events in Marietta, Georgia

In June of 1984, General William Sherman arrived at the City of Marietta on his march to sea (the Georgia Coast) and burned all that stood in his path.  Just north of the Marietta Square a major battle was fought at Kennesaw Mountain on June 27, 1864.  The most significant Kennesaw Mountain battle was Cheatham Hill where General Sherman was delayed on his way to Atlanta by a defeat by Confederate General Joseph Johnson.

The weekend of June 20-22, the Marietta Square will be staged as it appeared in 1864 with re-enactor camps and other events. 

Civil War commenmorating events will continue in and around Marietta throughout 2014.  For information, click on these links:
