Harper’s Weekly Report From and Image of Kennesaw Mountain

his week’s edition of Harper’s Weekly printed a feature on General Sherman capturing Kennesaw Mountain, when in reality he had been defeated at the battle there.

They also printed two sketches - one from Kennesaw Mountain and one from the fighting around Marietta, Georgia.
