Whatever your beliefs or political views may be, no one can deny that Wildman's is an interesting piece of history. It provides a glimpse into what life was like during the Civil War era, as well as the preservation of Southern history.

I really enjoyed this shop because they have some authentic civil war items. I like to collect bullets from the civil war and they have a great selection here. If you are interested in CW Memorabilia this is a must see shop. They have some...More

This place to me was just so-so. There is a lot of treasures and junk in this place. "Wildman" is definitely a character - knows a lot about southern history, however some people will be very uncomfortable in this place. No desire to go back.

This is quite an experience for those wanting a look into the vintage South...Lots of stuff to look at and read. No, this place is not PC (politically correct) and doesn't claim to be...so snowflakes and liberals will not like it for sure....Doesn't cost anything...More

Mr. Dent Meyers' "Wildman's Civil War Surplus" store is one of a kind. There are a LOT of interesting items from "the late unpleasantries," or "the war of Yankee agression" as Granny Clampett called it. Mr. Meyers, or "Wildman" is a noted authority on the...More

Perhaps "other side of he tracks" will help you get the jest of it. A crowded visual and oral experience if he is there and you get to talk to him. Be guided by the name and do not go with museum expectations. He has...More

If you want to be offended and leave with bad impression of the city of Kennesaw, you will like this place.

Needed a gift for co-worker. Stopped in. I am a Southerner at heart and wanted some good Rebel stuff. Lots of interesting things, but a little too rich for just a gag gift.

I have been visiting the store off and on since 1984. A lot of interesting history and the stories are amazing. You should go at least once in your lifetime. You'll never forget it!

Visit on a Saturday when Wildman may be dressed in his Full Confederate General Uniform, with twin pearl handle sidearms. A really unique place to visit, when you in the area.
