Hardee’s night march, the fighting on Leggett’s Hill, the
storming of the Railroad Cut, and more. Designed and led by

BATL seeks to connect residents and visitors to Southeast Atlanta’s
past; and promote learning through cultural tourism. The BATL event is a
showcase for the diverse contributions of Atlantans to our communities
since the Civil War, and highlights the roles of African Americans and
BATL also supports the implementation of a multi-purpose, interpretive
trail connecting the neighborhoods of East Atlanta and Kirkwood.
