The National Parks Service is celebrating its centennial anniversary this year. One of Georgia’s most notable parks is found at Kennesaw Mountain, a site that hosted a volatile struggle during the Civil War. Historian and researcher Brad Quinlin discovered that a large number of former slaves participated in the battle; many even lost their lives in the conflict.

We talk with Quinlin about the Battle of Kennesaw and the personal stories that make this struggle so compelling. 

Take a look at the full documentary, along with a panel discussion, below:
