Store Run By Gun-Loving Racist

Although intimidating, Dent and staff were rather welcoming. Interesting collection of large variety. If you are from the south, I'm sure you will find something. If you are from the north, you will be reminded that you are a yankee.

Wildman's Civil War Surplus

Whether you refer to it as the War Between the States or its more proper title, The War of the Rebellion, if you have a historical/genealogical interest in it -- here at Wildman's you will find a museum of books, documents, bullets, guns, belt buckles,and so much more.

Indeed, with all such shops, whether in the North or South, they tend to stand out as oddities, each with their own unique character. Wildman's is a must see shop when in Metro Atlanta, and General Myers is a living encyclopedia.

Store Run By Gun-Loving Racist

Every thing that is being written about [Dent Myers and his store] is true. He had claimed that he had worn his guns before the law was enacted. He has a lot of Civil war relics for sale, and his museum in the back costs only a quarter.

Store Run By Gun-Loving Racist

Wildman's Civil War Surplus is run by Dent "Wildman" Myers, who was born in 1931 and who looks like a senior citizen biker, or a member of ZZ Top circa 2025. Meyers calls his store "The Best Little War House in Kennesaw." He sells Civil War relics, political books, medicinal herbs, Confederate battle flags. Scattered about are displays of racist memorabilia. In the back of the store is a Ku Klux Klan outfit with a hood and a noose.

Meyers is the most visible and vocal proponent of a 1982 ordinance requiring the head of every household in Kennesaw to own and maintain a gun. It's earned Kennesaw the nickname "Gun Town USA." Many of its 11,000 residents ignore the law, but Meyers has a loaded .45 holstered on each hip.
