At the beginning of 1864, the Union was poised to begin its final drive into the deep South. The plan was simple, Union General William T. Sherman and his three separate armies with over 110,000 men, would advance south, seek and destroy the Confederate Army of Tennessee and capture Atlanta. However, a determined General Joseph E. Johnston was ordered to stop this invasion. Johnston's plan was also simple, fortify and defend each mile of southern territory, inflict greater losses on the enemy and force them into a costly mistake. Cleverly using the difficult terrain of northern Georgia, the plan nearly worked.Now you can re-fight the entire 120 mile march to Atlanta. Stop and face the invaders at places like, Rocky Face Ridge, Resaca, Kennesaw Mountain, and even Atlanta itself. Your choices will decided the fate of the Confederacy. Fight well and bring victory to your chosen side.
