A Worldwide Exclusive!
Model of a Civil War Shoupade fortification
The River Line Historic Area derives its name from Johnston's River Line,
a 6 to 7 mile line of Civil War trenches
and forts along the Chattahoochee River
Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston,
who authorized its construction.
Johnston's River Line
is particularly significant due to its unique fortifications called Shoupades,
a worldwide exclusive to Cobb County designed by Confederate Brigadier General Francis A. Shoup.
The Cherokee Indians occupied
the land that would become
Cobb County during the
1832 land lottery,
then populated by
and evolving into the
diverse culture of today.
