Civil War on the Homefront
Saturday, July 8, 2017 10am - 4pm
Join us at the William Root House Museum & Garden as we travel back to July 1864, after the Root family fled from Marietta, leaving their home to the advancing Union Army. Visit the disheveled parlor and dining room to see what the family may have left behind after rushing to leave. Head outside to meet with Union soldiers as they take over the house, constructing a headquarters and attempting to recruit new soldiers.
This program is included with the cost of regular museum admission and free for Cobb Landmarks members. Special thanks to the Sons Union Veterans, Sons Confederate Veterans, and the 30th Ohio Vol. Inf. Regiment for their support of this program.
