I have always been fascinated with the destruction, especially shelling, of cities during the war. Precious few examples exist, however. The only ones that I know of are: Vicksburg, Charleston, and Atlanta. This brings me to the topic of this thread: Does anybody know how severely Atlanta was shelled? Accounts by people in Atlanta would be helpful. I have seen some pictures of occupied Atlanta, and things don't seem too bad as far as damage goes (before it was burned that is). Also, does anybody know of any other cities that were shelled during the Civil War? Thanks.
