Total War: March to September 1864

From Dalton to Atlanta

What was the naval battle like?

It was typical for the war in that the Union possessed an overwhelming preponderance of firepower. Several Confederate ships were captured or sunk in half an hour, and the only time of real danger for the Union ships was when the CSS Tennessee, a massive ironclad, made a suicidal lunge at them. Rammed, fired upon, and surrounded, the Tennessee surrendered, by which time her deck had become a scene of disaster.

A final push by the South in mid 1864 found Confederates moving once more into Pennsylvania, where they burned Chambersburg, and came dangerously close to Washington, D.C., before being turned back.
