Did you know that "sesquicentennial" means "150th anniversary?" As in, 2014 is the sesquicentennial of the Battle of Atlanta!
The Chattahoochee River played an important role in the summer of 1864, as General William T. Sherman led the US Army on its march into Atlanta after the battle of Kennesaw Mountain. To teach visitors about these events, our park has developed 5 different trading cards. Each card shows a person, place, or event in the history of the Chattahoochee River during the Civil War.
You may pick up a set of cards at the Island Ford Visitor Center in Sandy Springs, Georgia while they last. Below is the image of each card and the information included on the reverse side of the card.
