    Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park was authorized for protection by the War Department in 1917 and was made a unit of the National Park System in 1933. The 2,888 acre park includes the site of some of the heaviest fighting of the Atlanta Campaign of the Civil War.The name Kennesaw is derived from the Cherokee Indian "Gah-nee-sah" meaning cemetery or burial ground. The battle was fought here from June 18, 1864 until July 2, 1864. Over 67,000 soldiers were killed, wounded and captured during the Atlanta Campaign.
