Description

WAR COMES TO DALTON
Take a guided driving tour with the "War Comes To Dalton" Civil War driving tour. Whitfield County is home to a rich Civil War heritage. This area felt the war's impact almost from the beginning of the conflict, thanks largely to the presence of a main north-south rail line, the Western & Atlantic.

During the early years of the war, Whitfield County witnessed the famous Great Locomotive Chase along with more customary sights such as troop trains and supply shipments puffing along the tracks. The area later became a hospital zone for confederate wounded, utilizing hospitals, churches and private residences to provide these medical services and eventually creating the need for a military cemetery.

The driving tour touches on each of these experiences, but it is generally organized to highlight the opening action of Sherman's Campaign. For sale now in The Dalton Freight Depot Welcome Center in historic Downtown Dalton, Georgia, and the Tunnel Hill Heritage Center in Tunnel Hill, Georgia. For more information or to order your copy to be mailed, please call 706-270-9960.
