Richard McMurry talked about the Civil War battles around Atlanta in 1864 and compared the strategies of Confederate commanders Joseph E. Johnston and his successor John Bell Hood. Mr. McMurry argued that Johnston’s reluctance earlier in the campaign to engage with Union General William Tecumseh Sherman placed Hood in a difficult position to defend Atlanta once he assumed command.

“A New Framework for the Atlanta Campaign” was part of the four-day conference titled “Atlanta, the Shenandoah, and the Turn to Total War,” held at the Hilton Atlanta/Marietta Hotel and Conference Center. close
