150 Years Ago Today: May 10th, 1864

     On May 10th, 1864, there was continued skirmishing along Crow Creek Valley and Mill Creek Gap at Buzzards Roost.  General McPherson had pulled back form his attempt to take Resaca and was encamped at Snake Creek Gap.  On the night of the 9th, McPherson sent a dispatch to General Sherman informing him of his inability to take Resaca.  On the morning of the 10th General Sherman received McPherson’s dispatch.  Needless to say, Sherman was “pissed off”, and sent a very curt reply to McPherson.  I can imagine that a few days later, when they met face to face, it was not a pleasant place to be.  After receiving the dispatch for McPherson, Sherman began planning a movement of the Army of the Cumberland to Snake Creek Gap to reenforce McPherson and attack Resaca.
