Resaca Battlefield

Though partially destroyed by Interstate 75, much of the battlefield along the Confederate lines has been preserved. The Friends of Resaca Battlefield, Gordon County and the Georgia Battlefields Association have created a battlefield park comprising more than 500 acres along Camp Creek that allows visitors to see the Resaca battlefield.  The entrance to the park is just west of the  I-75 and Georgia Route 136 interchange on Resaca Lafayette Road NW. Resaca's Confederate Cemetery, which contains the graves of more than 450 Confederates killed in the fighting there, was dedicated in 1866.
