This is the place on the battlefield of Atlanta, Ga., where the gallant General McPherson was killed, in July, 1864. During the fight General McPherson rode into this piece of woods alone. It so happened that there was a small gap at this point, between the 16th and 17th Corps, during the severe fighting. McPherson did not know of this fatal gap and he rode through, directly into the enemy's line. The skirmishers of the Rebel General "Paddy Cleburne" were concealed in the underbrush; they fired and killed McPherson. He fell from this horse at this spot; the horse dashed back into our lines, and the General's aides seeing his horse riderless, charged into the woods and recovered the General's body, driving off the vandals who were robbing him of his watch and money.
