DescriptionReproduction of a black and white photograph of the Rebel Works in front of Atlanta, No. 3. Source: Barnard, George N. Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign, Embracing Scenes of the Occupation of Nashville, the Great Battles around Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain, the Campaign of Atlanta, March to the Sea, and the Great Raid through the Carolinas. New York, 1866. Dimensions: 8"x10".
Interpretation"From the 29th of July until the 1st of September the army was steadily advancing until the line was sufficiently straightened to allow the detachment of the Fourth and Fourteenth Corps for a movement to the southwest of Atlanta. The capture of Jonesboro by these two corps and Kilpatrick's cavalry was one of the most bravest and most successful of the war. The fact that the fall of Jonesboro was to result in the abandonment of Atlanta seemed patent to the troops of both armies, and the struggle was prolonged and sanguinary. The works were carried. General Jeff C. Davis, commanding the Fourteenth Corps, turned in over one thousand prisoners and ten guns." Barnard, George N. Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign. (New York: Dover Publications, 1977), p. xvi-xvii.
