This Day in Georgia Civil War History

December 16, 1864

Battle of Nashville Ended Confederate Army as Effective Force

The Battle of Nashville concluded on this day, with the Union attacking from both wings, and finally routing the Confederate army, which fled in disastrous defeat - no longer an effective fighting force. General John Bell Hood retreated all the way to Tupelo, MS, where he resigned his command.
