The Battle of Atlanta: History and Remembrance is a collaborative project of the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship (ECDS) and Robert W. Woodruff Library. It is built using OpenTourBuilder, a free and open-source software developed by the ECDS in partnership with a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

OpenTourBuilder relies on many different different web technologies and libraries. We are grateful to forward-thinking organizations and individual developers who make free and open-source software on which other projects may be built. In particular, the back end is built with Django and Twitter Bootstrap, and the front end makes use of jQuery Mobile. We also draw extensively on Google Maps APIs.
