Nashville Campaign

Following the fall of Atlanta, John Bell Hood regrouped before heading north west of the city. Renamed the Army of Georgia, his force's first major battle at Allatoona Pass in not generally considered part of the campaign. Hood followed the Western and Atlantic Railroad north to Ringold, where he headed south, passing through Rome , Georgia to Cave Spring on the Georgia-Alabama line to meet with his new commander P. G. T. Beauregard.

From here he headed west to Decatur, then north into Tennessee, engaging troops under the command of George Thomas and John Schofield in the disasterous battles of Franklin and Nashville. He was soundly defeated in both battles.
