* Camp McDonald DayCamp McDonald Day

The Southern Museum will host a public program at the Museum on June 10, 9:30 am – 5 pm, highlighting the anniversary and early history of Camp McDonald. Established on June 11, 1861 during the beginning of the Civil War, Camp McDonald served as a Confederate training camp for Georgia volunteers. The approximately 60-acre camp encompassed a large portion of present-day downtown Kennesaw. Visitors will have a chance to interact with costumed living historians, learning about the experience of those early army volunteers and the way the camp impacted the surrounding area and citizens. The event will feature regular weapons demonstrations, activities, and lectures by local historian Michael Shaffer. Walking tours of the Camp McDonald park site will also be offered should accessibility, demand, and weather permit.
