Union Occupation @ the Root House
November 2, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join us at the William Root House Museum & Garden for a special event commemorating the destruction of downtown Marietta by Union forces on November 13, 1864. See the Root House after the family fled from Marietta, leaving their home to the advancing Union Army. Visit the ransacked parlor and dining room to see what the family may have left behind after rushing to leave. During this special event, meet with Union soldiers as they take over the house, constructing a headquarters and attempting to recruit new soldiers.
This program is included with the cost of regular museum admission and is free for Cobb Landmarks members. Special thanks to the Sons of Union Veterans and the 30th Ohio Vol. Inf. Regiment for their support of this program.
