More Hood

by kpmautner

John Bell Hood, in command of the Confederate forces desperately attempting to defend Atlanta, is now fighting skirmishes at Ezra Church (on the MARTA Blue Line), at Decatur, at East Point (S5 on the Red Line) and at Macon (70 miles south of Atlanta, where all the refugees thought they were safe).

These skirmishes run through the period from the 22nd through the 3oth July 1864, as the Union Army gradually encircles the city of Atlanta.  Sherman’s headquarters are sited approximately 100 yards from where I now live.
