Atlanta Civil War Tour with Rabbi Lydia Medwin, Followed by Lunch and Q&A Session at The Temple

DATE:  Monday, June 26

TIME:  Bus departs from The Temple at 10:00 AM

COST:  $35.00 per person

This expedition will take you back to the summer of 1864 when the Federals arrived in Georgia during the Civil War.  If  it were July 22, 1864, Union forces would be preparing their defenses down a corridor of I-20 while Confederate forces would be preparing to attack on your left.  From here, Sherman had been effectively bombarding Atlanta for 24 hours between Boulevard Drive and Memorial Drive.  Traveling north on Moreland Avenue from the downtown, one would have a birds eye view of the entire battle which became know as "Leggett's Hill."  It was from this rise that Sherman's men first fired artillery into the city of Atlanta.

Join us for a truly compelling experience as we visit Atlanta's civil war battle sites.  Our chauffeured executive coach bus and tour guide will meet the group at The Temple for a "step-off" tour with opportunities to make our way off the bus at Peachtree Creek and the State Capital.  A lively recount of the Atlanta Campaign, including the Battle of Peachtree Creek and the Battle of Atlanta, will educate us not only about the strategies of both sides, but the toll it took on civilian life.  Afterwards, please join us for lunch at The Temple where our tour guide will be happy to answer further questions about the trip.  Space is limited.
