2011 Historic Preservation Month

Ever wonder about the Rhodes Hall windows? Why would Amos Rhodes, who was a young boy in Kentucky during the Civil War, commission these windows for his 1904 Atlanta residence?

Join us at Rhodes Hall this evening to hear Dr. Gordon Jones, Senior Military Historian and Curator of the Atlanta History Center, speak about the Rhodes Hall painted glass windows. Learn about the Civil War scenes that are depicted, the men whose portraits are represented in the windows and the Lost Cause.

The video below takes as interesting look at what 150 years can do to a battlefield as reenactors visit grounds that have since been developed.
