Ecelbarger Î The Day Dixie Died PDF Û The Day Epub / Î dixie ebok, died epub, The Day book, The Day Dixie Died eBookThe Battle of Atlanta was fought on July 22 1864 The battle lasted for eight hours and may well have been the battle that ended the Confederacy It was fought over a large area that surrounded the downtown area of Atlanta The size of the battle could not only be measured in area but in the number of dead It is estimated that over 10000 soldiers were killed wounded or captured during those eight long hoursThe Battle of Atlanta was significant for several reasons People on both sides of the conflict were tiring of the war and a movement was afoot to replace Abraham Lincoln during the next election and propose a truce that would reunite the States of the Confederacy and to allow slavery It was the Battle of Atlanta that proved to be the turning point of the war and allowed the North to see the war coming to an end Lincoln was nominated
