by  Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park

Program image

Geography plays an integral role in defining the legacy of a place. Kennesaw Mountain has held a vital role in the local history of the area largely because of its physical geography. This was especially true during the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain, as the geography influenced the development of tactics and orders of troop movements. Students will learn about the importance of geography and maps, and have an opportunity to make their own.
