Kennesaw Mountain Connections at Stones River

Jun 14 - Jun 15, 2014

Artillery and infantry demonstrations and stories of soldiers and units who played key roles at Stones River and Kennesaw Mountain.

After the bloody battle of Stones River, Union forces surged south to controll Chattanooga. By June 1864, Union forces had stalled against Confederate defenses at Kennesaw Mountain. As the anniversary of that battle approaches, rangers and volunteers will present a series of artillery and infantry demonstrations and living history programs about the stories of soldiers and units who survived Stones River to fight at Kennesaw.

Programs at 10 and 11 a.m. and 1, 2 and 3 p.m. will feature musket and/or cannon demonstrations. In addition to the hourly programs, soldiers will share additional stories that connect the two campaigns. Activities will include signal corps, artificers, quartermasters and provost marshals.
