Smith and Grierson
This chapter describes General William T. Sherman’s determination to get Nathan Bedford Forrest. While all of Sherman’s efforts to “get” Forrest failed, they had kept him busy enough to stay away from Sherman’s supply line. By September 1864 Confederates gave up Atlanta, and Sherman no longer worried about Forrest. There would be one more major raid in Mississippi—a winter raid led by cavalry chief Benjamin Grierson aimed at decimating the Mobile & Ohio.
