Welcome to the Center for the Study of the Civil War Era at Kennesaw State University. We provide quality programming that reflects academic inquiry and a greater understanding of the causes, nature and effects of the bloodiest conflict in our history. So much of what we continue to grapple with today can be traced to the events leading up to and emanating from the conflict of 1861-65. The Civil War Center also leads tours of historic sites and provides the historic underpinnings for the Kennesaw Mountain Staff Ride for Executive Leaders program. We hope that you enjoy all our website as to offer.
