Atlanta in Fulton County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
The Railroad Cut
Cheatham's troops temporarily recovered the line here - late afternoon of the 22d - mostly by frontal assault, partly by penetrating it at the unguarded cut - an episode portrayed in the Cyclorama at Grant Park. The ground was greatly altered after the war; the R.R. cut was still visible as late as 1903.
