Ruff’s Mill Battlefield preservation project to start

The LAMAR Institute will be conducting the archeological and historical investigation to locate and delineate the boundaries of the 1864 American Civil War Ruff’s Mill Battlefield, located in the Concord Covered Bridge Historic District.

The National Park Service awarded the LAMAR Institute a more than $95,000 grant in August for the Ruff’s Mill Battlefield Project. The focus of the grant will help provide local details within a broader national context that will empower the community in its education and preservation efforts.

The Battle of Ruff’s Mill, which took place near Smyrna, represents an important linchpin battle resulting in the fall of Atlanta.
