An excellent animated map of Hood's invasion of Tennessee is available at
the Civil War Trust website
Hood will soon move northeast to strike the railroad. For the next week, Gen. Alexander Stewart's Corps will destroy the rail line between the Chattahoochee and Etowah Rivers, capturing Federal garrisons at Big Shanty (Kennesaw) and Acworth. Taking the bait, by October 6th, Sherman had his army mobilized and was marching toward the old battleground at Kennesaw.
