"Presently, and as if by magic, there sprung from the earth a host of men, and in one long, waving line of blue the infantry advanced."- General Samuel French. Some of the toughest fighting of the war occurred on a small spur just below the dual- peaks of Kennesaw. This Ranger- led hike will describe the futile Union assault and the Confederate defense of Pigeon Hill. We will meet at the Pigeon Hill parking area (GPS Coordinates: 33.963276, -84.594391) and will go up the rocky slope. The hike is moderate, so bring good shoes and plenty of water.
