Resaca Georgia resounds in Confederation Civil War history. Its famous Battle of Resaca involves a story about a young girl, Mary Green and her younger sister, Pyatt, who found 2 soldiers who lay dying from wounds they suffered during the battle. Along with two former slaves the girls buried the bodies of the soldiers in their flower garden that had just begun to bloom. As the story goes, their father, Col. John Green, donated land to bury 450 other soldiers who had died here during the battle.

Each year a reenactment of the Battle of Resaca, the first battle on Atlanta Campaign, is held on the third weekend of May. Close by is the beautiful Chattahoochee National Forest that cover over 749,000 acres in north Georgia.

Another historic attraction to see in Resaca is the Oostanaula River Bridge. The bridge is one of two that was attacked by General Dodge during the initial phase of the Battle of Resaca. Guarded by most of the Rebels in the town, Dodge misread the resistance and thought a large number of Confederates were occupying the city when less than 8,000 were stationed there. Today you can still see the pillars that are antebellum dated probably 1847.
