Nash Farm Battlefield

In the last post I mentioned that the museum for this battle had closed because of flying a Confederate flag which offended a black person.  I had never heard of this battle so looked it up.

From the Explore Georgia site.

The battlefield is a 204-acre pulic park in the western part of Henry County about 21 miles south of Atlanta.  The Civil War battle called Lovejoy or Lovejoy's Station took place in the area which is now mostly covered with development.

During the second half of 1864 there was much military activity during the Atlanta Campaign in the area, including Kilpatrick's Raid, infantry battles and skirmishes as well as the campsite of Confederate general Stephen D. Lee's Army Corps.

The park is open seven days a week and the museum just Fridays and Saturdays.
