Kennesaw Mountain and Marietta
I took this picture from the top of the County Deck. You can see some of the steeples on Church Street and Kennesaw Mountain looming in the background.
The mountain is about one and half to two miles away. It isn't far away. During the second week of June, 1864, a part of the Civil War was fought on and points near the mountain. The North had a couple thousand casualties and the South had about 600.
People in downtown Marietta could hear the rage of war. They said it sounded like popcorn popping.
