Sounds of the Civil War

This past weekend was the 148th anniversary of the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain. Live history demonstrations of all shapes were on display at the Kennesaw Mountain state park in North Georgia.

Among the highlights of the weekend were live artillery firings, which included a fantastic reproduction Howitzer civil war era cannon. Additionally the 8th GA Regimental Band performed a lunchtime concert on the battle field for visitors of the event. Crafting and cooking demonstrations were also provided throughout the weekend for all ages.

I can't say enough how much of a pleasure it was to witness the history being relived through the passionate members of the Kennesaw Historical Society, and many thanks go out to those that I had the pleasure of speaking with and learning from.

Check out some of the action and sound samples in the video bellow.
