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.
Atlanta police say a construction crew has unearthed what appears to be a cannonball near Centennial Olympic Park. Police spokesman Gregory Lyon says the crew dug up the suspected cannonball Thursday afternoon and authorities took it to a bomb range.
Atlanta band Granville Automatic is preparing to release a music video filmed at an ice cream shop on the site of the 1864 battle that left the city in flames during the Civil War. The project is part of an effort to raise awareness about Civil War battlefields across the country.
Blood once soaked the ground of battlefields now covered by skyscrapers and train stations in Atlanta, strip malls in Nashville and farm fields and forests across the South. Now, 150 years after the American Civil War, two musicians are trying to keep that history from fading. The women, who write about Civil War clashes and those who fought them, are recording videos on battlefields that inspired their songs.
