March to the Sea; Battle of Waynesborough

The Battle of Waynesborough took place, in which Union cavalry defeated a small group of Confederate cavalry trying to slow the March to the Sea. This removed what little resistance remained as the Union army approached the coast, although native Georgian William J. Hardee did have some troops in the city of Savannah.
