Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, GA (2013)
In honor of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, NPT supported the Trust for Public Land in the acquisition of a 42-acre privately-owned property at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield in Georgia. The hallowed ground, known as Nodine’s Hill, was part of the active battle field. The transfer to the National Park Service preserves remnant Union entrenchments, rifle pits and cannon emplacements. NPT also developed an educational module to connect kids to this park; it is in use by local elementary schools in Georgia. The course has science, historical and cultural components that help students discover the value in protecting and preserving the park for future generations through lessons, discussions and field exercises.
