Atlanta Battlefield

Like the other battles fought around Atlanta, the July 22, 1864, battlefield has been lost to development. Georgia Historical Commission markers throughout the urban landscape point out key battle sites. Mortuary cannons mark the death sites of Generals James B. McPherson and William H.T. Walker. The Atlanta History Center houses the famous Atlanta Cyclorama and the Western & Atlantic Railroad locomotive Texas. Visit the Smith Family Farm on the museum grounds, a rural plantation house built in the 1840s, with a smokehouse, slave gardens & costumed interpreters. Many notable Confederates are buried in Oakland Cemetery.
