The Atlanta History Center ... ry-Center/

Created by the Atlanta History Center and designed to complement the History Center's award-winning permanent exhibition, Turning Point: The American Civil War, the new exhibition War in Our Backyards: Discovering Atlanta, 1861-1865 challenges visitors to consider their personal connections to a war that was literally fought in all of our backyards. Although the battlefields around Atlanta are gone, there are visible connections hiding in plain view: historic artifacts, dug relics, maps, photographs, monuments, and the Cyclorama, which is one of the world's largest Civil War paintings. Using the latest interactive technology, War in Our Backyards will use historic map overlays to show what battles took place where you live. Additionally, a special video program will allow visitors to see Civil War photographs of the city as they were originally meant to be seen: in 3-D.
