Women and children needed! In July 1864, Gen. William T. Sherman ordered that all workers at Sweetwater and Roswell Mills be arrested and taken by foot to Marietta for deportation north. Most were women and never returned to their homes.

All women and children who would like to commemorate the historic walk are asked to call Connie at (770) 794-5145. The walk takes place July 12 beginning at 9 a.m. at Brumby Hall and ends at Atherton Square off the Marietta Square. Plain period dress or long skirt with period blouse (and comfortable walking shoes) requested.

For more information, visit The walk is in conjunction with the 150th commemoration of the Civil War in Marietta.


The Bill Atkins Band, a fixture in country music entertainment for the past few decades in Cobb County and until recently in semi-retirement, will be back in action at the Republican Bar-B-Q on July 4 at Jim Miller Park. The music starts around noon when the July 4th parade ends. In addition to the regular band members Donnie, Leonard, Terry, Chris and Bill, they will also feature a special guest appearance by “Mr. Country Music,” Rhubarb Jones, on the drums.


Fashion spotlight of the week: Seen in white jeans and a blue and white top with handkerchief hem — Leigh Roberts of Marietta — blueprint for style.
