You are here


Located in the heart of metropolitan Atlanta, nearly all of the Peach Tree Creek battlefield has been lost to development. However, a few public parks preserve portions over which the Confederates advanced. Tanyard Creek Park occupies what was near the center of the battle and contains several memorial markers. The Atlanta History Center has extensive exhibits on the Civil War battles fought in and around the city. Self-guided tours of battlefield sites are available there.  Visit the Smith Family Farm on the museum grounds, a rural plantation house built in the 1840s, with a smokehouse, slave gardens & costumed interpreters. Don't forget to visit Oakland Cemetery, where many notable Confederates are buried.
