Mark the Mover has relocated residents of the Kennesaw community for 30 years. Relocating households in Kennesaw, Georgia, Mark the Mover provides packing, storage, crating, shipping and moving – both local and long distance.

Kennesaw in Cobb County has about 30,000 residents and is north on I-75 of Atlanta Georgia. First called Big Shanty, Kennesaw was home to a railroad construction camp, was a major scene of a Civil War clash and hosted Great Locomotive Chase on April 12, 1862. Kennesaw formally became Kennesaw later in 1867.

Big Shanty hosted a famous Civil War battle, the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain, when Sherman’s forces were traveling south towards Atlanta to cut off the southern railroad commerce relied on by the South to connect the ports of Savannah and Charleston with Atlanta, Birmingham and even the ports of New Orleans. The Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park and the Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History are in or near Kennesaw and full of history. Kennesaw Mountain and Little Kennesaw Mountain are southeast of the city and the area of the battlefield park.  The city was renamed for the mountain.

The summit of Kennesaw Mountain is the highest point in the Atlanta metro area, much taller than Stone Mountain reaching an elevation of 1,808 feet (551 m) above sea level or about 600 to 700 feet above the higher plain regions around Atlanta. Stone Mountain by contrast has a peak elevation of 1,686 feet but in a way is in a lower plain. Fan’s of peaks and mountains might refer to both these Atlanta metropolitan altitudes more as hills, both pale in comparison to the mountains commencing in north eastern Georgia.

Kennesaw has a very low crime rate, in 1982 lawmakers in Kennesaw passed an ordinance, more to send a message than anything, requiring all households to own a gun. Although there are no known cases of fines or violations to the ordinance, the message to home invaders and criminals was clear.

Marietta Georgia

As of the 2000 census, the city of Marietta had a total population of 58,748, one of metro Atlanta´s largest suburbs. Homes had been built near the Cherokee town of Kennesaw by the year 1824. In 1837 the Georgia Gazetteer said Marietta was named for the wife of US Senator and Supreme Court Judge, Thomas Willis Cobb. (Thus Cobb County) Marietta, legally recognized by the Georgia state legislature in 1834, has a square with a small courthouse. Marietta became home the Western and Atlantic Railroad. Three fires during the 1850s destroyed much of the city. The Georgia Military Institute was built in 1851. Marietta’s Oakton reidence was occupied in 1864 by Major General Lorings headquarters during the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain. In April of 1862, Union scout James Andrews came down to Marietta and spent the night in the Fletcher House hotel

Tourist attractions in Marietta include the Cobb Landmarks & Historical Society, Drexel’s Fine Arts & Collectibles, African American Sports Museum of Atlanta, Marietta Museum of History, Cobb County Youth Museum, Marietta Aeronautical Museum and Education Center, East Cobb Stables.

Marietta became home for the Bell Bomber factory during World War II. The bomber factory built 669 B-29 used by the American forces and employed 29,000 men and women at its peak shortly before the end of the war. Lockheed Corporation in 1951 took over operations after being abandoned by Bell. Now known as Lockheed-Martin, it is one of the major employers in the county and state.

Marietta was chartered by recognition of the Georgia state assembly on December 19, 1834. Thus in 2009 Marietta was 175 years old! Named for Mary Cobb who was known by her friends as ‘Marietta’, she was an active Georgian and wife of U.S. Supreme Court Judge Thomas Cobb. Early growth was fueled by the railroads and Marietta became the home base for the Western and Atlantic Railroad. Between Atlanta and Kennesaw Georgia, the civil war found Marietta near the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain in 1864.

Marietta was designed with a cute little square and retains the pedestrian meeting place as a center of activities. Now more often called a city than a town, Marietta is the home of the Cobb County Courthouse.

The Big Chicken is a KFC restaurant in Marietta. It is a landmark referred to as the ‘Big Chicken’ due to its distinctive 60 foot high rhomboid shaped chicken facade signage. At the intersection of Cobb Parkway and Roswell Road, the Big Checken was built in the 1950’s but the signature chicken facade was not added until 1964. It was not a KFC until the 1970’s. The Big Chicken sign, over five stories tall, was designed by a Georgia Tech architecture student as a marketing gimmick by the original restaurant owners, when it was called Johnny Reb’s. KFC rebuilt the landmark after damaging winds in 1996.

Marietta Ga is also home to the Confederate Cemetery, or also known as the Marietta Confederate Cemetery. Hard feelings among Union politicians led the Confederate Cemetery to be neglected the same federal funding used to maintain the National Cemetery less than a mile away.

The Marietta National Cemetery came about with the sympathies of Marietta Unionist Innkeeper Henry Cole. Cole donated the land and proposed that the dead from the Northern and Southern Armies be buried side by side. But snots from the federal government vetoed the gesture. Still, stunning examples of the sacrifices made by Americans in the war withstand, 405 dead from Wisconsin are buried amidst a memorial of the Wisconsin State Badger in granite.

Marietta is a suburb of Atlanta north and east of the city, Smyrna Georgia and the Vinings Atlanta district. With a city population of more than 60,000. major private employers in the area include Home Depot, Publix Supermarkets and IBM. Quasi-private employers include Lockheed Martin and Wellpoint Health, but the largest area employer is the Cobb County Public School System.

Marietta is also north and west of the Chattahoochie River, and mills along its left flank were probably centers of early commerce, but Marietta got its real start in the railroad era, when despite political wrangling, the Western and Atlantic Railroad settled in Marietta. Marietta was devastated by three major fires in the 1850’s prior to the War Between the States. South of the Kennesaw Mountain skirmishes, at which the North prevailed, Marietta was set afire again by General Sherman after the famous battle. Almost the entire town was torched, except for the Marietta Hotel. After the war, suspicious that the owner of the Marietta Hotel was a spy for the North, that was burned to the ground by the townspeople, the story goes.

Marietta is home to the Marietta Confederate Cemetery where 3,000 Americans who fought for the South and died in the War Between the States are buried. Nearby is the Marietta National Cemetery where around 10,000 Union troops are interred. The cemetery was founded in 1866 as a final resting place for Northern troops killed in the “March to the Sea” between November 1864 and December 21, 1864 in Savannah. Another 8,000 Americans who fought in the Spanish-American War, World War I and II, Korea and Viet-nam are also buried there, but the cemetery was declared full up sometime between 1998 and 2006 and is closed to new burials.

When the land for the cemetery was dedicated by one Henry Cole, his idea was that Union and Confederate troops should be buried together as a form of healing and to foster that bygones be bygones. This was not to be, any Confederate soldiers found buried in the National Cemetery either fought for the Union in subsequent wars or was mistaken for a Union Soldier. Casualties of war buried in the Confederate Cemetery were like-wise all on the side of the South, unless a mistake was made. Both sides, even after the end of the war, were committed to this.

Marietta and Cobb County are still solid members and representatives of the deep south, but the vibrant and cosmopolitan city harbors today much less of the ill-will toward Yankees today. Very little in fact, with the Dobbins Reserve Air Force Base and the steady stream of youngsters and career Air Force members that live part of their lives near Marietta we have even been known to tolerate people from California. And you would hardly notice our amusement.
