Leaders & Legacies of the Civil War

The Siege of Atlanta
Atlanta, Georgia was a major population and industrial center in the Confederate South, and Union Maj. Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman knew the city needed to fall in order to defeat the Confederacy. Learn why Sherman targeted Atlanta, what happened as he and his troops approached the city, and even how the eventual  Union victory there impacted the 1864 presidential election! This is an encore of a program originally presented in 2014.
