Old Joe --
The road to New Hope Church --

Why don't they stop those damned bugles --
The strong fine soul within --
The criminal blunder --
Tell mother I am in the front ranks yet --

We knew we had met them in vain --

Abstract:

"When Union General William T. Sherman marched toward Atlanta in 1864, he found himself face to face with Joseph E. Johnston's Army of Tennessee, entangled in an untamed wilderness that came to be known as the Hell Hole. During the week-long ordeal of virtually continuous fighting at New Hope Church and nearby Pickett's Mill and Dallas, a new era of trench warfare was introduced and Sherman's and Johnston's strategies for the remainder of the Atlanta Campaign were forged. In this examination of a series of actions in Paulding County, Georgia, maps pinpoint battle locations while photographs capture the sites of conflict and portray the brave men who served on both sides of the War Between the States"--Page 4 of cover.
