This Day in Georgia History

May 05, 1864

Atlanta Campaign Launched

General William T. Sherman launched his Atlanta Campaign as more than 100,000 Union soldiers began their march into Georgia (a few had already entered Georgia in the preceding days). Their route would take them to Ringgold, then Tunnel Hill, and on towards Dalton.
