Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield is a 2,965-acre National Battlefield that preserves a Civil War battleground of the Atlanta Campaign. The battle was fought here from June 19, 1864, until July 2, 1864. Sherman's army consisted of 100,000 men, 254 guns and 35,000 horses. Johnston's army had 63,000 men and 187 guns. More than 67,000 soldiers were killed, wounded and captured during the Campaign.

The visitor center provides information about the battle. While walking the 17.3 miles of trails, you will see historic earthworks, cannon emplacements and various interpretive signs.
