Battle of Kolb’s Farm

Gen. John B. Hood order his corps to attack two corps of Union troops attempting to outflank Johnston’s main Confederate army. Anticipating Hood’s action, the Federals dug in and were ready. A hail of rifle and artillery fire, plus swampy terrain, forced Hood to call off the Battle of Kolb’s Farm. Union casualties were about 350, compared to Confederate losses of around 1,000 killed, wounded, or captured.
