On this day (September 1st) in 1864, Union Army General William Tecumseh Sherman lays siege to Atlanta, Georgia, a critical Confederate hub, shelling civilians and cutting off supply lines. The Confederates retreated, destroying the city’s munitions as they went. On November 15 of that year, Sherman’s troops burned much of the city before continuing their march through the South. Sherman’s Atlanta campaign was one of the most decisive victories of the Civil War.
Being a Combat Wounded Veteran having served during the 1st Gulf War and in Afghanistan I think of what I have experienced and what it was like also back when Sherman took Atlanta! War is Hell and I have to say that I would do it all over again but overall the below sign from my Beach Collection sums up my thoughts precisely!
