The Fall of Atlanta:

The city of Atlanta, Georgia fell to Union forces under Major General William T. Sherman on September 2, 1864, following a six week siege after the Battle of Atlanta on July 22, 1864.

Photos from the series: Selected Views from “Photographic Views of Sherman’s Campaign” by George N. Barnard, Photographer, 1862 - 1865

The impact of the fall of Atlanta was instrumental in the eventual victory for the Federal forces. It boosted morale in the North and insured the reelection of President Abraham Lincoln which meant that the war would continue to the South’s capitulation. Until then, with no major Confederate Army left to contest Sherman and his men, he would order them to move east, towards Savannah, and from there, north into the Carolinas. Unopposed, Sherman’s Army brought the war to the heart of the South and to its civilian population.

These photos are from a series by George Barnard. Once an employee of Matthew Brady Studios, Barnard worked for the Topographical Branch of the Army Engineers after December 1863. Assigned to Sherman’s Army, he captured many of the images of the Atlanta Campaign on early photographic equipment.

My three favorite stuffed animals. First one is the teddy bear I got when I was about a year old (1983). Finally gave him a name when I was four, which is “Radar”. I named him after Big Bird’s teddy bear, which in turn was named after Radar from M*A*S*H*.

The second is Scotty. He came with a grey coat, which was lost probably twenty years ago at the very least.

The third is Buster. I got him when I was eleven, given to me by my best friend. She had received him for Easter when we were in kindergarten. I had admired the toy for years (i.e. jealously wanted it). His nose looks weird because I had to re-glue it after it fell off in the washer years and years ago. He probably needs another turn in the washer.

Loving all the Tina love! Everyone I know who has seen Bob’s Burger says that I am exactly like Tina. There are times where I don’t see it but I guess I will trust what everyone else says, for once.

Butts.

Every dudebro who says these women shouldn’t have taken private nude photos on themselves and then put them on a secure, private server if they didn’t want everyone in the world to see them should have to have every message they have ever sent on OKC dramatically read to their boss, mom, and granny

LIT-ERALLY the best.

Some of the Presidents were great and some of them weren’t. I can say that because I wasn’t one of the great Presidents; but, I had a good time trying to be one.
