"The Mountain is King" Kennesaw by BruceDunning

Kennesaw Travel Guide: 64 reviews and 97 photos

Kennesaw Mountain is huge

This mountain is most noted for the Civil WAr battle that took place here. General Sherman was taking attacking Atlanta, and The Confederates made a stand around Kennesaw; 15 miles from down town center. The mountain served as a strong point to have cannon that could fire in all directions. Today is is a National Park and also has a museum and movie of the event. Walking to the top is about 1 mile and a bit steep.

The Climb Ends up as a View

From this vantage point on top, you can see for I guess 20-30 miles in all directions. The sky is still rather clear in this big city.

    The Railroad Museum is right up my alley as well as the Civil War site. The mountains look splendid. Nice tips!
