A group of archeologists was out surveying a new hiking trail in Cobb County, Georgia when they uncovered an unexploded bomb from the Civil War (secessione). According to a Facebook post shared by the Southeast Archeological Center, a team was out conducting a metal detecting survey for a hiking trail at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park when they found the explosive on the last day of their survey. The park, per the National Park Service, is a preserved battlefield that stretches nearly 3,000 acres. The similarly named battle was fought during Union General William T. Sherman’s Atlanta Campaign and resulted in approximately 4,000 Union and Confederate deaths.
