“The Siege of Atlanta, Ga.- Confederate attack on General Logan’s Corps, July 28th, 1864. The assailants after driving in the Federal pickets moved up steadily, and, with a steady step, opened out when within four hundred yards of the fortification. Meeting no force, the assailants took courage, and when within three hundred yards raised a tremendous yell and started on the double quick; but at that instant the signal was given, and every battery, double-shotted with canister, was let loose, and the apparently deserted fortification was lined with heads, and at every foot a shining musket was aimed at the assailants. The destroying volley swept in a single instant hundreds of men into eternity, and laid thousands upon the earth maimed, many of them for life, on the plains before Atlanta. They awaited no second fire; another, and the army would have been destroyed. They therefore sought shelter beyond the range of the Federal guns."— Frank Leslie, 1896
