The article presents information about the exploration of the U.S. Civil War campaigns in Atlanta, Georgia. Two days are said to be adequate time to explore the remnants of the 1864 campaign to capture Atlanta. One can begin explorations by driving in on U.S. 41 (Northside Parkway) and proceeding southeast to West Paces Ferry Road. Just south of U.S. 41, where Paces Ferry Road crosses the Chatta-hoochee River, Major Genera Joseph Wheeler's cavalry skirmished with Union infantry.
