KENNESAW, Ga. — The National Park Service is using the virtual world to help it mark the 156th anniversary of the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports instead of in-person demonstrations at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, fans can see a variety of programming every hour from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday on the park’s Facebook page. Viewers will see Union and Confederate artillery and infantry demonstrations, 19th century children’s games, guided hikes and learn about civilian life and the wartime roles of women and others in 1864. The Battle of Kennesaw was part of Union General William T. Sherman’s June 27, 1864 campaign to attack Confederate General Joseph Johnston’s troops.
