The Union raids around Atlanta in late July and August 1864.
Because General Sherman was unhappy with the first result he decided to send out another stronger force under the command
of General Kilpatrick to accomplish the same objectives. Again the Ross' Brigade, though smaller than any of Kilpatrick's
brigades it was able to fight Kilpatrick time and time again till Kilpatrick felt he was in a box and had to extradite his unit or fail as
did McCook. In doing so he ran over the Texas Brigade, but the brigade regrouped so fast hardly anyone realized it had
happened. The end result was that Kilpatrick was unable to completely disrupt Hood's communications and in turn lost a
disproportional amount of men and material and he could have captured the whole Brigade. This raid is described from 4 views plus the Nash Farm's version which follows.http://henrycountybattlefield.com/Kilpatricks%20Raid%20and%20Minty's%20Calvery%20Charge.html
First that described by Lt George L. Griscom, the second by S. B. Barron and a third by Victor Rose. The 4th comes from Barron's
book, but is a union version from a man who saw a lot of what happened.
It is almost funny the difference in the data reported and how it was reported. At times it is hard to see who is winning, Please
read this information and know that this is not the whole story.
