Review by: Gordon Jones, senior military historian and curator—Atlanta History Center - December 1, 2012
The “Burning of Atlanta” has taken on such mythical proportions that it long ago became separated from historical fact. In What the Yankees Did To Us, Stephen Davis has re-examined original sources and discovered new ones to re-tell the story but this time with feet planted firmly in reality. The result is the best and most accurate work on this topic to date. If you think you already knew about this famous chapter in Civil War history, think again.
