Museum Exhibit: The Civil War in Sandy Springs
"The Civil War in Sandy Springs”, at the Heritage Sandy Springs Museum tells the previously untold story of the Civil War in Sandy Springs, Georgia.
In the turbulent summer of 1864, the Union Army occupied the small farming community of Sandy Springs, Georgia. Those weeks changed the lives of every family that lived through them. “The Civil War in Sandy Springs” explores their story. From never before published diaries and newly discovered letters, the firsthand accounts and struggles of local people can be understood for the first time. Family heirlooms and artifacts treasured for 150 years are on display along with the actual guns and cannon shells that terrorized the community during the long summer of occupation. “The Civil War in Sandy Springs” will be on view at the Heritage Sandy Springs Museum from April 30, 2014 through April 1, 2015. Museum Hours: Wednesdays & Saturdays, 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Free Admission. Get more information.
