May 7 - September 2, 1864

Ringgold Gap


Here a Federal advance position

was maintained

during the winter 1863-1864

with the main force

concentrated at Chattanooga.

Sherman moved south

through this Gap, May 7, 1864

to begin the Atlanta Campaign.

He captured Atlanta

four months later, September 2,

and reached the coast

at Savannah, December 21.

This movement split

the Confederacy in two,

destroyed military resources,

centers of supply,

and hastened

the end of the war.
