This program allows students to explore the main battlefield of the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain. Using the interpretive wayside signs located throughout the area, students have twenty minutes to search and find answers with the clues provided. The hunt encourages teamwork and makes learning about the Civil War, a daunting subject, interactive and fun.
