The Battle of Ezra Church and the Struggle for Atlanta


Fought on July 28, 1864,the Battle of Ezra Church was a dramatic engagement during the Civil War’sAtlanta campaign. Confederate forces under John Bell Hood desperately fought tostop William T. Sherman’s advancing armies as they tried to cut the lastConfederate supply line into the city. Confederates under General Stephen D.Lee nearly overwhelmed the Union right flank, but Federals under General OliverO. Howard decisively repelled every attack. After five hours of struggle, 5,000Confederates lay dead and wounded, while only 632 Federals were lost. Theresult was another major step in Sherman’s long effort to take Atlanta.

Detailing Stephen D. Lee’s tactical missteps and Howard’s vigilantleadership, Hess challenges many common misconceptions about the battle. Richlynarrated and drawn from an array of unpublished manuscripts and firsthandaccounts, Hess’ work sheds new light on the complexities and significance ofthis important engagement, both on and off the battlefield.
