Battle of Resaca

May 14, 1864

The Battle of Resaca was one of the few

places where the entire armies of Sherman

and Johnston faced each other in the Atlanta

Campaign. Judah's (2nd) Div., 23rd Army

Corps & part of the 14th Corps moved

from the high bluff west of Camp Creek 3/4

mile west to the valley floor & attempted to

carry Confederate works east of the stream.

Met by blazing musketry & artillery fire from

Hindman's and Bates Divs., posted on the

ridge (east) the Federals sought refuge in the

stream-bed & made no further progress. This

tragic and futile episode is unique in the annals

of the Atlanta Campaign.
