Overview
-

According to historian Richard McMurry, the 1864 campaign “through the woods and across the hills, valleys, and streams of North Georgia was one of the biggest, longest, and most spellbinding of the American Civil War. It was also one of the most important.” Despite its decisive impact on the war, the Georgia campaigns have still not received the attention they deserve. In the 1990s, editors Savas and Woodbury put together two volumes of wide-ranging and especially thoughtful essays by leading historians and students of war with footnotes, original maps, photos, and index that quickly sold out. Long out of print, they are once more being made available with a new Foreword by award-winning author Steve Davis in The Campaign for Atlanta & Sherman’s March to the Sea.
