Union General William T. Sherman
George N. Barnard, official photographer of the Chief Engineer’s Office, photographed Union General William T. Sherman on horseback at Federal Fort No. 7 in Atlanta, Georgia sometime between September and November 1864. After forcing General John B. Hood to abandon the munitions center of the Confederacy, Sherman remained in Atlanta, resting his war-worn men and accumulating supplies, for nearly two and a half months.
