Nashville, Tenn. Federal outer line
Barnard, George N., 1819-1902, photographer.
CREATED/PUBLISHED 1864 December 16.
This photograph is of Hood before Nashville. Continuing his policy of the offensive at any cost, Gen. John B. Hood brought his reduced army before the defenses of Nashville, where it was overthrown by Gen. George H. Thomas on December 15-16, in the most complete victory of the war. If the date borne on this photograph is correct, it was taken in the course of the battle.

This photograph is of the Battle of Chattanooga, September-November 1863. After Rosecrans' debacle at Chickamauga, September 19-20, 1863, Bragg's army occupied the mountains that ring about the vital railroad center of Chattanooga. Grant, brought in to save the situation, steadily built up offensive strength, and on November 23-25, burst the blockade in a series of brilliantly executed attacks. The photographs, probably all taken the following year when Chattanooga was the base for Sherman's Atlanta campaign, include scenes on Lookout Mountain, stormed by Hooker on November 24.
