Union generals select from the finest homes in Atlanta for their headquarters - all left vacant. General John White Geary, an ardent abolitionist, moves into a huge mansion called The Terraces. It is the home of a successful businessman Edward Rawson. A native of Vermont, he is one of Atlanta’s secret Union sympathizers.
Georgia Public Broadcasting and the Atlanta History Center commemorate the 150th anniversary of Union General William Tecumseh Sherman’s 1864 march into Georgia with the original series, “37 Weeks: Sherman on the March.”
