Catalogue Note

On June 27, 1864, Kennesaw Mountain, located about twenty miles northwest of Atlanta in Cobb County, became the scene for one of the major battles of the Atlanta Campaign of the American Civil War. The significant frontal assault launched by Union Major General William T. Sherman against the Confederate Army of Tennessee under General Joseph E. Johnston ended in a tactical defeat for the Union forces. Strategically, however, the battle failed to deliver the result that the Confederacy needed—a halt to Sherman's advance on the city of Atlanta.
