Kennesaw Mountain and more Atlanta stuff

Earl Hess's Kennesaw Mountain: Sherman, Johnston, and the Atlanta Campaign (UNC Press) is scheduled for a spring 2013 release. It is great to finally see more 1864 Atlanta Campaign battle books hit the shelves.  Both author and press have great track records with books of this type, so high expectations are merited.

Until then Civil War Atlanta students can absorb a new study of the bombardment and occupation of the town, Stephen Davis's What the Yankees Did to Us: Sherman's Bombardment and Wrecking of Atlanta (Mercer UP, Oct 2012).


  1. Drew: That's great news about the Hess book. I don't know how an author who turns out so much published material sustains the quality but he does.

  2. Hello Drew
    Thanks for the update. I knew Prof. Hess was working on this one. It is good news to see more on the Georgia Campaign. Hopefully, there are few others in the works. I agree with John's earlier comments about the author. Let's hope he continues to write for a very long time. Looking forward to his latest on Knoxvile.

  3. These sound great.

    I wish someone would do a book length study on what Bierce called 'The Crime at Pickett's Mill'.
