    Reproduction of a black and white photograph of the Battle Field of Atlanta, GA. July 22 1864 No. 2. Source: Barnard, George N. Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign, Embracing Scenes of the Occupation of Nashville, the Great Battles around Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain, the Campaign of Atlanta, March to the Sea, and the Great Raid through the Carolinas. New York, 1866. Dimensions: 8"x10". This day was to witness the bloodies scene of the great Sherman Campaign. The story of the battle is simple. On the extreme left the Sixteenth Corps was engaged in the destruction of the railroad from Decatur to Atlanta, with orders to move as soon as their work was complete, down a country road, and form on the left of the Seventeenth Corps, refusing the line a point nearer the railroad."
