This is funny... Kennesaw should celebrate Bobby Lee's birthday, Confederate Memorial day, etc., and not the uSofA's independence which it did not play a part in (go to Kettle creek for Georgia's busting the brits party in that war!)

No, Kennesaw is famous for pissing off Sherman's morons - stopped the yankers cold, for when the cowards couldn't take the mountain, they went around it and were so enraged they burnt Atlanta to the ground... BUT, not before it could be effectively evacuated - thanks to the CSA at Kennesaw holding the jerks back long enough ;-)
