Many Georgians aren’t aware that, in addition to hiking trails, rivers, lakes and mountains, Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites are home to several remnants of forts and earthworks that date back as early as the 17th century?
History doesn’t just live on plaques and markers in these locations, it literally comes alive with re-enactments and special events throughout the year.
In honor of Veterans Day on Nov. 11, here are five Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites to visit that highlight the history of Georgia’s earliest battles.
