Atlanta Campaign
Ringgold Gap
May 7, 1864

Here, through Ringgold Gap, a Federal advance position, Sherman and his amry moved forward to begin the campaign against Atlanta and the heart of the South. The Confederate defense, well conceived and ably executed, delayed the march to the sea and the eventual division of the Confederacy.
