This driving tour will take you to many of the historic sites around Sandy Springs and reveal the story of that turbulent time in the summer of 1864, when Union General William T. Sherman unleashed his Army to cross the Chattahoochee River to take the City of Atlanta.
The tour will take you from tranquil National Parks along the Chattahoochee to the bustle of Downtown Sandy Springs, where along the way you will discover historical homes, intact earthworks,ancient fishing dams and memorable stories of men fighting there way across the countryside.

Could be better...
... But still worth checking out and i hope that they will keep adding information for lesser-known places and expand coverage of major battlefields.
This is pretty handy! Surprised to learn several of the sites are very near our home. We haven't lived here long and haven't made it to Heritage Sandy Springs. This is the next best thing. I would like to see some of the grammatical errors fixed in the next update, and there is a mismatch between some of the text in the left bar links and the map site. Other than that, it's a hit!
Who knew there was so much history in and around Sandy Springs? Great app for any history buff looking to explore the area's Civil War history.
