Travel Tips for Kennesaw

Farseek - Kennesaw

by farseek

Well the first thing know, old Atlanta is a huge forest. No wonder it burned so easily during the War. This is the view to Little Kennesaw Mountain (known as "Junior" or "The Runt") from Big Kennesaw Mountain (known as "Pa" or "Bigun"). Not much to look at, but there's a story behind it, if I can get it straight. It seems the besieged Confederate soldiers (or was it the attacking Yanks?) espied the Runt from their vantage point atop Bigun and decided it would make an excellent strategic point from which to rain down cannonball fury upon the bluecoats.

No one wanted to make the mile-long journey up the Runt (don't let the name fool you - it's a pretty steep hill) hauling a cannon through the trackless forest in the pouring rain and sliding mud under deadly enemy fire. No one, that is, except... er, some guy whose name I forget. Let's call him Bubba. Now Bubba was built like a team of ill-tempered oxen and had the wits to boot. He let his comrades leash that ridiculously heavy piece of metal to him and he charged up the Runt singlefootedly, cannon in tow, as if the formidable mountain was a mere compost heap. No one knows what became of this brave soldier, but they say the cannon is still up there. Anyone foolhardy enough to go see for themselves is eligible for the highly-coveted "Bubba" award.

Ok so I didn't read the commemorative plaque here too closely, but I'm nearly certain I have the facts of the matter almost completely incorrect.
