                                         [To accompany S. 1930]
                    The Committee  on Energy and Natural Resources, to which was
                  referred the bill (S. 1930) to adjust the boundary of the Kennesaw
                  Mountain  National Battlefield Park to include the Wallis House
                  and Harriston Hill, and for other purposes, having considered the
                  same,  reports favorably thereon without amendment   and  rec-
                  ommends  that the bill do pass.
                    The  purpose of S. 1930 is to adjust the boundary of the Ken-
                  nesaw  Mountain  National Battlefield Park to include the Wallis
                  House and Harriston Hill.
                                      BACKGROUND  AND  NEED
                    Kennesaw   Mountain  Battlefield in Georgia was set aside for
                  preservation and protection in 1917 to commemorate the Civil War
                  Battle of Kennesaw Mountain, which proved to be a major turning
                  point for the Union Army and the eventual fall of Atlanta. The bat-
                  tlefield was designated as a National Battlefield Park in 1935.
                    The Wallis House  is one of the few original structures still re-
                  maining  from the battle. Built by Josiah Wallis in mid-1850, the
                  house served as the headquarters of Union General Oliver 0. How-
                  ard, and was the scene of heavy fighting on July 27, 1864. Imme-
                  diately north of the Wallis House is Harriston Hill, the site of a sig-
                  nal tower for General Howard's Army Corps during the battle.
                    S. 1930 would expand  the boundary of the Battlefield and au-
                  thorize the Secretary of the Interior to acquire approximately eight
