An illustrated compilation of Union and Confederate narratives by combatants who participated in one of the most important campaigns of the Civil War Rocky Face Ridge, Resaca and New Hope Church. Pickett's Mill, Kennesaw Mountain, Peachtree Creek, Ezra Church, Jonesboro: battles on Georgia soil in which thousands were killed, wounded or captured, and overshadowed for decades by attention paid to the Civil War in the East. But the Western Theater was equally important, perhaps more so strategically. Using hundreds of diaries, letters, journals, memoirs, official reports and wartime photographs, Larry M. Strayer and Richard A. Baumgartner offer a unique, realistic portrayal of Gen. William T. Sherman's 1864 offensive to defeat the Confederate Army of Tennessee and capture the manufacturing, supply and rail center of Atlanta. Echoes of Battle: The Atlanta Campaign is a timeless tribute to the common soldiers and their commanding officers who struggled four arduous months for the city's possession. First-person accounts from 285 different combatants bring this riveting story into focus, and are further brought to life with more than 300 photographs, many never before published. The resulting presentation provides a clear understanding of what it was like to carry a musket, live in mud-filled ditches, scrounge for food and lose comrades in battle during the war's final year. It is a companion piece to Blue Acorn Press' Echoes of Battle: The Struggle for Chattanooga.
