A band producing music videos at Civil War battlefields across the country has released a video filmed at an Atlanta ice cream shop on the site of an 1864 battle. Granville Automatic's song "Copenhill" is part of an effort to raise awareness about Civil War battlefields.
Interest in the ghost of a Confederate soldier has become so great that the National Park Service is closing some roads into a north Georgia Civil War battlefield this Halloween. Rangers say they hope that closing all of the secondary roads into Chickamauga Battlefield Wednesday night helps keep ghost hunters from wandering around.
A Sons of Confederate Veterans group plans to erect a monument on the Griswoldville battlefield site in Jones County. The battle took place on Nov. 22, 1864 during Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman's march to the sea.
The privately owned 16-acre tract on Burnt Hickory Road is thick with pines and young hardwoods, but little else of interest other than its role as a staging ground for a Civil War battle 147 years ago.

That's the asking price sought by the Cherokee County tract's private owners, who have put the land up for sale.
