Atlanta History Center
The Atlanta History Center has ever-changing exhibits about the history of Atlanta and the South, from folk art to golf. Perhaps, the most exciting addition to their collection is the relocation and reopening of the Battle of Atlanta Cyclorama. Both a historical piece depicting a monumental Civil War battle and an artifact in its own right.
Cycloramas were similar to the Imax theaters of today and gave a larger than life view of events. The Battle of Atlanta is one of only two cyclorama’s existing in the United States, the other being the Battle of Gettysburg in Pennsylvania.
At 49 feet tall and longer than a football field, this 10,000-pound piece of history is sure to impress.
