MARIETTA - On Thursday, August 9, 2018, the Marietta Museum of History presents its latest installment of the popular Evening with History series. This series highlights research and publications in the field of local and regional history.

Did you know Marietta had five civilian casualties due to WWI artillery shells fired in our own backyard? Do you live in the area these shells were fired into? If so, you most likely could be living on top of live ammunition! Join us at our special WWI 100th Anniversary presentation as author/researcher Michael Hitt presents the fascinating and tragic history of Marietta’s role as a Camp Gordon artillery training site. New research by Hitt has uncovered the exact locations of where the men camped, where they trained and the two sites where live ammo could still be present. Hitt will take us step by step through their patriotic beginnings to their tragic end. This will be a special night of important scholarship and commemoration. Tickets are $5 at the door.


When: August 9th, 2018 starting at 6:30 pm

Where: Marietta Museum of History, 1 Depot Street, Marietta, GA 30060

Cost: FREE for Museum Members and $5 for “Not Yet Members.”
