Civil War and Revolutionary War battlefields
Revolutionary War Battlefields
Southernmost of the 13 colonies, Georgia was invaded by British troops in 1778, eventually losing most of the state. In 1781, the tide turned and Georgians began to win back their homeland.
Civil War Battlefields
Although Union Troops captured coastal areas as early as November, 1861, the first engagement was in April, 1862. In September, 1863, in extreme northwest Georgia, more 36,000 men casualties in the bloodiest two days of American History, Chickamauga.
In May, 1864, William Tecumseh Sherman led his men along the Western and Atlantic Railroad from Chattanooga to Atlanta during the Atlanta Campaign. Two months later he began a six week March to the Sea.
Finally, in the last great Southern offensive of the Civil War, John Bell Hood led the Army of Georgia through the state and north into Tennessee on the disastrous Nashville Campaign.
