PRLog - Mar. 17, 2014 - ATLANTA -- The 15th Infantry Regiment Association, in collaboration with the National Park Service, announced today the placement, on 6 March 2014, of a monument in the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park honoring the service of the 15th Infantry, 16th Infantry, 18th Infantry, and 19th Infantry Regiments for their action during the Civil War at Kennesaw Mountain. These Regiments served with distinction in the Army of the Cumberland during the Atlanta Campaign of 1864 and have continued their service to the present day. These Regiments were the only Regular Army Infantry Regiments in the Western Theater of the Civil War.

The yearlong effort by the 15th Infantry Regiment Association was made possible by the generous donations of individual and corporate sponsors without whose support this Monument would not have been possible.

Active duty and former members of these Regiments have participated in the Monument planning process.  Active duty soldiers of the 15th Infantry and 19th Infantry have partnered with the 15th Infantry Regiment Association to erect the Monument as a tribute to Civil War members of these fine historic units.

The Monument dedication ceremony is scheduled for Noon, 27 June 2014 during the 150th anniversary events at the Park. Civil War 150 events in the Park are scheduled throughout 26-29 June.

Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park is a 2,965 acre National Battlefield that preserves a Civil War battleground of the Atlanta Campaign. Opposing forces maneuvered and fought there from 19 June 1864 until 2 July 1864.  The Park is located northwest of metro Atlanta along Interstate 75.
