We Fought at Kennesaw

While many accounts have been written of the battle of Kennesaw Mountain and the Atlanta Campaign, this book takes a different approach, telling the story of the battle in the words of the men who were actually there and fought. This book gives accounts of the events which occurred in June, 1864 including Pine Mountain, Pine Knob, Kolb's Farm, McAfee's, Golgotha, Lattimer and Powder Springs.
