Overview
-

From the author of The Campaign for Atlanta and Hood’s Tennessee Campaign comes a comprehensive account of events surrounding one of the Civil War’s bloodiest battles at Allatoona Pass. Just short of five weeks after the fall of Atlanta, a Confederate division of 3,300 men under General Samuel French was sent to capture the Union fort at Allatoona pass protecting the vital Western and Atlantic Railroad in Bartow County, Georgia. Holding it was Brig. Gen. John M. Corse’s small command. The Confederate attack on October 5 was pressed hard, but the Union garrison held in one of the most gallant defenses of the war. Casualties were high in one of the bloodiest small battles of the Civil War. Complete with diary entries, military communications, photographs, battle and fortification maps, and lists of Federal and Confederate forces involved in the campaign.
