Atlanta History Center is excited to be a sponsor and Preservation Partner of Atlanta Preservation Center’s 20th annual award-winning Phoenix Flies: A Celebration of Atlanta’s Historic Sites, March 4 through March 26, 2023. The three-week event celebrating Atlanta’s cultural and historic resources will showcase over 50 participating Preservation Partners offering close to 100 separate events, including guided walking tours of historic neighborhoods and districts, cemeteries, parks, gardens, and battlefields; lectures on history, historic preservation and rehabilitation, and photography; and open houses and tours at house museums, churches, history centers/libraries, and community landmarks.

Join project curator Dr. Gordon Jones for a special look at the hidden details and unknown backstories of The Battle of Atlanta cyclorama. Your personalized tour takes you around the painting scene by scene:  what’s accurate, what’s not, and how it got that way. Find out what’s been restored and what’s original, and experience how the 1880s craze for virtual reality helped create one of our great national treasures!
