Blue and Gray Saturday Free Family history event
Occurring on the fourth Saturday of each Month Through Saturday, August 30, 2014.

To commemorate the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War, Heritage Sandy Springs will present Blue and Gray Saturdays, three days of educational fun for the whole family, as part of its full year of programming on the Civil War in Sandy Springs.
Families are invited to learn about Civil War life and see history come alive with re-enactors depicting life during the Civil War. Confederate and Union soldiers will share the stories of warfare and women will portray precarious life on the home front.
Attendees can decode a message, try on a disguise, load up a haversack and more. Learn about the Confederate Militia that guarded the crossings of the Chattahoochee or hear from a Federal soldier what is was like for an African-American in the Army.
Blue and Gray Saturdays will be held on the last Saturday of the month, June August, with programming running continuously, 11:00 a.m. 2:00 p.m. The dates and featured topics are:
