From Civil War to Civil Rights
The NPS 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. The African-American Attitudes Towards the Civil War document (full = 7.1 MB) or webpage (exerpt) is the report on our findings.
General Management Plan
The General Management Plan/Environmental Assessment for Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park was finalized in 1983. This report evaluates a preferred management strategy for long term protection and visitor use of Kennesaw Mountain NBP.
Due to an increase in the volume of traffic that frequents Kennesaw Mountain Drive at Kennesaw Mountain NBP, an assessment has been drafted proposing various alternatives to the current condition. This report highlights shuttle bus management for the park. Please email the park if you would like a copy of the full 62-page document.
