Tuesday October 10th 7:00pm-9:00pm
While no significant Civil War battles were fought in Sandy Springs, the area was greatly impacted by the over 60,000 invading Union troops who rested and resupplied here before their final march on Atlanta. Come join local historian Clarke Otten as he gives us great insights into these harrowing times and the important role Sandy Springs played using letters and other documents from local citizens of that time.
