Roswell Burning Continued

Union Gen. Kenner Garrard continued burning mills and factories in Roswell, including a woolen mill over which a French flag was hoisted. Garrard sent word of what he had found and destroyed at Roswell to Gen. William T. Sherman, who told Garrard to stay put. On July 7, Sherman would send a second set of instructions that proved very controversial.
