The NPS has adopted "From the Civil War to Civil Rights" as a theme of the 150th commemoration of the Civil War. In order to better understand the attitudes of the African American community towards the Civil War and to help us develop interpretive materials Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park partnered with Kennesaw State University's Center for the Study of the Civil War Ear to carry out a series of focus group meetings. This document is the report on our findings. The file is rather large and could take some time on a slower connection.
