Lowery & Associates assisted park volunteers at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park with the layout of over 3100 candles to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the civil war battle that took place there. Each candle represented a soldier that died in the battle.
Using GPS and a total station, an alignment was created based on natural features and a historical marker. A grid was then calculated based on the proposed candle locations and around 300 points were placed on the ground using GPS. From there, park volunteers and Boy Scouts used strings pulled from the 300 staked points to create the additional points.
