Thanks for the followup Bill.On this day in 1864, Federal and Confederate troops clash at Resaca, Georgia. This was one of the first engagements in a summer-long campaign by Federal Major General William T. Sherman to capture the Confederate city of Atlanta. The spring of 1864 saw a determined effort by the Federal government to win the war through major offensives in both the eastern and western theaters. In the east, Federal Lt. General Ulysses S. Grant took on Confederate General Robert E. Lee, while Sherman applied pressure on the Army of the Tennessee, under the command of General Joseph Johnston in the west.
