Museum Exhibit: The Civil War in Sandy Springs

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.
