About the Event

The Confederate assault on the forts at Allatoona would be the first major battle in what proved to be Hood’s disastrous Nashville Campaign. The Battle of Allatoona Pass, fought on October 5, 1864, is rich both in myth and legend and is one of the most dramatic and tragic episodes of the Civil War. 

It was the inspiration for the familiar hymn by Evangelist Peter Bliss, “Hold the Fort,” and is remembered for the summons to surrender message by Confederate General Samuel G. French, “in order to avoid a needless effusion of blood.”
