Coverage / Year1866
DescriptionReproduction of a black and white photograph of Savannah, looking down the River. Source: Barnard, George N.

New York, 1866. Dimensions: 8"x10".
Interpretation"The army was obliged to remain in and near Savannah until it could be clothed and equipped to start on the raid through the Carolinas. Soldiers that have performed much successful campaigning through an enemy's country soon weary of the quiet of garrison life." Barnard, George N. Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign. (New York: Dover Publications, 1977), p. xvii.
