"Good people of North Georgia see through the lies and deceit"

"The rhetoric of the 1860s election was not at all civil. It was incredibly negative toward one another and had little to do with issues and a lot to do with personalities which seems too much like today."


"I urge you come let's go enlist."

"People were just living here, living their lives and the war just happened around them."

"We are hoping that's as close as the war ever gets to us. But quite honestly it keeps moving closer and and closer and closer. Our fear, is that if it gets too close they are just going to come on in because of those three things, Chattanooga, our water supply, and the railroad."

"Bragg's Army marched down this very LaFayette road a vital road through this part of Georgia."

"This is considered to be the second bloodiest battle of the American Civil War. It would be great if locals understood more about it."

"A cheer will rise from the Confederates for a short time, but then the realization of the cost of this action over the last three days begins to set in. All of these units are only a fragment of what they have been."

"It is a hallowed ground for all Americans. Many men have given their lives in the past to give us the freedoms that we have today."

"It is just an awesome experience to honor the men that fought and died here. There are so many neat things that happened in this community that people don't realize what a great honor it is to live in this area where the history is so rich, what happened here shaped us as a country today. We are what we are now because of what happened in the past."
