During the American Civil War, Atlanta served as a major link in the Confederate supply chain thanks to its many railroads. In 1864, the Union Army began the invasion of Georgia, eventually starting the Battle of Atlanta, which ended after a four-month-long siege. Before retreating, General John Bell Hood ordered all possible assets to the Union Army to be destroyed, including buildings. As General Sherman of the Union Army passed through the city, he ordered Atlanta to be burned to the ground. Following the end of the war in 1865, modern-day Atlanta slowly rose from the ashes.
