Saving History Saturday: Mapping Earthworks in Georgia

Civil War era earthworks cross the 100-acres of Hampton-Beecher Nature Preserve, located in southwest Atlanta. It’s believed that these remains may be the last of encampment trenches in the Georgian city.

Professor Richard Blackmon and his students from Perimeter College have been collecting data and conducting surveys with permission from Atlanta Parks and Recreation. These studies will help to provide guidance for local historic preservation.

To learn more about the project and other areas that the students have studied and mapped, please check out the original news article:
