I have a building you seem to have overlooked. In north Georgia, just south of the Tennessee line, there was a ferocious Civil War battle called Chickamauga. One of the most vivid memories of my childhood was visiting and climbing to the top of the Wilder Monument--an 86-foot castle tower with a commanding view of the site. It is sometimes closed for repairs, but when it is open it is definitely worth a visit. Just a short drive off I-75.

Attached is the public domain photo from Wikipedia and here is the US Park Service page with info on the battlefield, including a picture and description of the tower:
