Atlanta Campaign

Resaca

May 13 - 15, 1864

 

In this vicinity

the Confederate lines

North and West of Resaca

held firm against Federal

attack. Sherman then

executed a successful

flank movement to the West

and South around Johnston's

position thus making the

Confederate line untenable

and compelling the troops

of the Confederacy to move

deeper into Georgia.
