Where The General Was Caught

Nice flag added at the tablet where the locomotive "General" was caught.

Where The General Was Caught

Almost missed it! Just a small sign and viewing platform. If you aren't into Civil War history, you probably won't appreciate this stop. However, knowing the story and seeing the General in Kennesaw, we found it interesting.
