Although a small engagement in comparison to other battles, the Confederate victory did succeed in delaying the Federal advance against Atlanta. There is a small museum with a good background of...

It was a little hard to find , but so worth the effort. There was a diorama and a wonderful video. The walking tour was beautiful, but make sure you wear walking shoes.

If you are a civil war buff this is a great place. Some of the best preserved battlefield and trenches in the country. There is a small but nice museum.One thing lacking is a nice picnic area. The other thing that is different is that instead of charging a 5.00 parking fee like other state parks, they charge by the... More

If you are interested in the paranormal in any way, this would be a great place to visit. The main office has a photo of something very paranormal and I won't give it away in this review!! Historical places are all throughout Georgia and it's a great educational place to take your kids if you home school them. My son... More

Quiet walk in the woods with grandchildren. There was not much historical importance information gained by the children but we did enjoy walking the paths. Ranger was helpful and provided interesting information on the history. My great great uncle served with the Federals from Maryland/West Virginia area. It was interesting to talk to the Ranger about shared history. I would... More

Not much to see, manly a walk in the woods as it was during the Civil War. Small visitor center. Worth about 15/30 minutes

If you are looking for a nice walk in the woods, go to Kennestone and enjoy the hikes for free. If you go here, it is priced a bit more then it is worth for hikers. Perhaps the battlefield visitors can appreciate and pay for this adventure, but we found it to be overpriced for what you get. Why are... More

Its only open Thur, Fri, Sat & Sun. The professional staff is just Ranger Jim & he can tell you anything about the Civil War in Ga. & beyond. His Great Grandfather (50 GA) fought against 2 of mine 51st NY & 9th NY @ Burnside Bridge. Jim knew the history without even thinking about it. This park is just... More

It seems to be a secret, can't get in the place all the time. Seven visits and I finally found the gates open. Understood once i got in, there was very few people and seemed very dull.
