Another reason to visit the Atlanta History Center where an original gas lamp post from Civil War Atlanta is also located. A fragment of one of Sherman's shells ricocheted off this lamp post mortally wounding Solomon Luckie, a free black man. Photo of Solomon Luckie-courtesy Atlanta History Center.
