Atlanta in 1864

A view of Atlanta in 1864 as seen from the dome of the Atlanta Female Institute following the city's surrender to General Sherman during the War Between the States. The streets are empty as Sherman's evacuation order sent residents to exile.  Many of them boarded the Atlanta train and went south to Jonesboro. The unpaved road running west is Ellis Street which crossed Ivy Street to the intersection of Peachtree Street. Find your ancestors on Georgia's largest genealogy website Georgia Pioneers
