This tour will travel along the front lines of the Civil War Battle of Atlanta and to focal points in historic East Atlanta, providing an action-packed overview of the battle while walking through its most contested land. Attendees will hear the human stories of the battle and get a sense of the troop movements from tour guides Henry Bryant and Katina Van Cronkhite, authors of East Atlanta – Images of America. They will also learn about the early history and growth of this significant business node at numerous important sites. Find out how this vibrant neighborhood made the journey from pioneer days through the Civil War conflict to the Civil Rights era changes that continue today. The tour takes about an hour and a half in an easy walk on, behind and in front of the lines where troops were on the move on July 22, 1864. Visitors will hear stories of the men who fought in this historic battle that changed the course of US history, the early settlers who forged a life here and business people who planted the seeds and grew this unique community.
Advance tickets available on this site will be required to attend.
EABA strives to create cohesion and communication between businesses, residents and City of Atlanta to preserve the history and integrity of East Atlanta Village.
