Gilgal Church

While the original earthworks Confederate soldiers made using logs from the Gilgal Church for the Battle of Gilgal Church no longer exist, visitors can see a partial reconstruction of what those works would have looked like on the battlefield today. In addition to these works, there is also a stone marker commemorating the battle and the Kennesaw Due West School, which was relocated to the site in the 1980s.
