(George Barnard photo of Allatoona Pass after the battle, view looking north). The Clayton-Mooney house (still standing) is in the left background, and on the hill above, the Star Fort. The artillery stables can be seen in the upper right corner of the photo. The Eastern Redoubt is a short distance east of the stables, out of the picture


(10-12-03) It would be almost impossible to get into the exact same position that Bernard used to take his photos after the battle. The Corps Of Engineers built a big embankment on the southside of the cut and lined it with riprap to help hold Lake Allatoona, some of it you can see in the picture above. Due to new growth of trees and the changes in the elevations of the new road along with the embankment, the only thing that hasn't changed is the house (Clayton-Mooney) and the cut itself

(10-12-03) This view shows the height of the embankment. The original rail bed was along the rock wall that is in the center of the picture. The Clayton house is just beyond the white fence on the left side of the picture. This will give you an idea of what it looks like now
