Rising 1,808 feet above sea level, Kennesaw Mountain was the site of what some might regard as a suicide attack by Union soldiers against Confederate troops positioned on top of the mountain. Resulting in a horrific loss of life, it was but one battle out of several that comprised the Atlanta Campaign from May to September 1864. The campaign, which was the Union effort to damage both the Confederate Army and its resources, ended with the capture of the city of Atlanta in early September.
Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park preserves the grounds of this battle, offering interpretive hiking trails, an orientation film, a museum and a self-guided driving tour.
