National Historic Site
Atlanta Campaign
Ringgold Gap
May 7, 1864
Here, through Ringgold Gap,
a Federal advance position,
Sherman and his army
moved forward
to begin the campaign
against Atlanta
and the heart of the South.
The Confederate defense,
well conceived
and ably executed, delayed
the march to the sea
and the eventual division
of the Confederacy
