"Well researched, endlessly informed, and compulsively readable, Marching Through Georgia is everything a work of popular history ought to be." — Civil War Times Illustrated
In this engrossing work of history, Lee Kennett brilliantly brings General Sherman's 1864 invasion of Georgia to life by capturing the ground-level experiences of the soldiers and civilians who witnesses the bloody campaign. From the skirmish at Buzzard Roost Gap all the way to Savannah ten months later, Kennett follows the notorious, complex Sherman, who attacked the heart of the Confederacy's arsenal. Marching Through Georgia describes, in gripping detail, the event that marked the end of the Old South.
