The Battle of Allatoona Pass is a largely forgotten and overlooked battle. Sandwiched between the fall of Atlanta and the beginning of John Bell Hood’s invasion of Tennessee, the fight gets a cursory mention in histories. There are few books dedicated solely to the fight along the Western & Atlantic Railroad that fateful October morning. The battle produced casualty rates that equaled or exceeded the most famous battles of the war, with far fewer men engaged. The result was an intense, sharp battle that left mangled and dead upon the field a much larger percentage of soldiers actually engaged.
