Interpretation"The 'Atlanta Appeal' remarked shortly before the battle of the 28th, 'that General Hood would succeed in annihilating his army in just three weeks if the style of fighting lately inaugurated was persevered in.' But General Hood had discovered that attacking General Sherman's army was not a very satisfactory style of warfare." Barnard, George N. Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign. (New York: Dover Publications, 1977), p. xvi.
